  • Hi zhuw12,

    You can use Moment.js to covert UTC Time to Local Time in Rest API like this:

    <script type="text/javascript" src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.3.1/jquery.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/moment.js/2.22.1/moment.js"></script>
    	<script type="text/javascript">
    			var TimeZoneUtilities = {
    			  utcToLocalTime: function getSPCurrentTime(webUrl,value) {
    			    return $.ajax({
    			      url: webUrl + "/_api/web/RegionalSettings/TimeZone",
    			      method: "GET",
    			      headers: { "Accept": "application/json; odata=verbose" }
    			    }).then(function (data) {
    			      var offset = -(data.d.Information.Bias + data.d.Information.StandardBias + data.d.Information.DaylightBias) / 60.0;
    			      return moment.utc(value).utcOffset(offset);
            url: _spPageContextInfo.siteAbsoluteUrl + "/_api/web/lists/getbytitle('RestDate')/items(1)",
            type: "GET",
            contentType: "application/json;odata=verbose",
            headers: {
                "Accept": "application/json;odata=verbose"
            success: function (data) {
                console.log("UTC Time: "+ data.d.testdate);//UTC datetime value from REST response
                var testDateString = data.d.testdate; 
    			var orderDate = new Date(testDateString);
    			    console.log("Server time: " + value._d.toISOString());//Convert to local time based on TimeZone
            error: function (data) {
