The Purpose

To parse a timestamp into its parts:

  1. YYYY - Year
  2. MM - Month
  3. DD - Day
  4. hh - Hour
  5. mm - Minutes
  6. ss - Seconds

How to Configure

Copy the Code

NOTE: This converts in UTC time zone.

let Timestamp = new Date(inputData.Timestamp).toISOString();

let Year = Timestamp.split("-")[0];
let Month = Timestamp.split("-")[1].split("-")[0];
let Day = Timestamp.split("-")[2].split("T")[0];
let Hour = Timestamp.split("T")[1].split(":")[0];
let Minute = Timestamp.split("T")[1].split(":")[1];
let Second = Timestamp.split("T")[1].split(":")[2].split(".")[0];

output = [{Year, Month, Day, Hour, Minute, Second}];
