Calculated date/time field and Last Field Change Date/Time field don't take the user's time zone to format the value

Description

For example:

  • create a calculated date/time field

  • set the formula to new Date(119,8,6,23,0,0) which is Sept 6, 2019 at 11pm UTC

  • add the field to the issue view screen

  • navigate to any issue and look for the calculated field value

  • it will show the date+time as 06/Sep/19 11:00 PM (assuming you're using an English locale) instead of showing the date in your personal time zone as set on your profile. For example, in India, it should display 07/Sep/19 4:30 am

Note that this is only a display issue - date/times in Jira are stored in UTC anyway.
