connector needs Date/time in yyyyMMddTHH:mm:ss+0000 format

Hi all,

 

I am building another connector which needs date formatted <yyyyMMddTHH:mm:ss+0000>

 

The year as a 4-digit decimal number including century, followed by the month as a decimal number with a range of 01–12, followed by the day of the month as a decimal number with a range of 01–31, followed by a character T, followed by the hour as a decimal number using a 24-hour clock with a range of 00–23, followed by the minute as a decimal number with a range of 00–59, followed by the second as a decimal number with a range of 00–60, followed by the timezone as hours offset from GMT. An example timestamp would be 20130703T19:38:41+0000.

 

I can get the date but not in the correct format.

 

Can anyone help please.

 

Thanks

    Hi,

    This is assuming you want the current date and time:

     

    var date = new Date();

    var year = date.getYear()+1900;
    var month = (date.getMonth() < 10)? '0' + date.getMonth() : date.getMonth();
    var day = (date.getDate() < 10)? '0' + date.getDate() : date.getDate();
    var hours = (date.getHours() < 10)? '0' + date.getHours() : date.getHours();
    var minutes = (date.getMinutes() < 10)? '0' + date.getMinutes() : date.getMinutes();
    var seconds = (date.getSeconds() < 10)? '0' + date.getSeconds() : date.getSeconds();
    var timezone = date.getTimezoneOffset();

     

    var formattedDate = year + '' + month + '' + day + 'T' + hours + ':' + minutes + ':' + seconds + '' + timezone;

     

    console.log(formattedDate);

     

    Let me know how you go

     

    Cheers

  • Hi, great thanks. The timezone offset is coming back as -60 instead of -0060 but I can hard code that. Otherwise great thanks
