When certain versions of the Oracle JDBC driver are used by iDashboards, values read from TIMESTAMP columns are not displayed properly in iDashboards. Please see the attached document for more information. When certain versions of the Oracle JDBC driver are used by iDashboards, values read from TIMESTAMP columns are not displayed properly in iDashboards.
This happens because Oracle drivers return the Java type oracle.sql.TIMESTAMP for values in TIMESTAMP columns, instead of java.sql.Timestamp as mandated by the JDBC standard.

For an Oracle data source: iDashboards Admin edit the data source, in the Edit a Data Source window the paste the above line in the Optional Driver Properties.
If iDashboards is reading the data from its repository database, the driver property can be set by adding the following line to the ivizgroup.properties file, and restarting the application server:
When multiple driver properties must be set, the name=value pairs should be separated by semicolons:
