    Description

      MDL-72458 introduced in Moodle 4.1 a new feature to display the user time zone

      While working on MOBILE-4203 we've noticed that when the user has selected to use the server time zone we receive a value 99 (not the server time zone) and currently we don't have any way to obtain the time zone.
