Date conversion

Hi,

 

I am recieving a javascript date (SendDate) object in below  json response in the middle of a flow.

{
  "Code": 1,
  "Message": "Executed successfully",
  "Result": [
    {
      "FilterId": 0,
      "FilterName": "No filter used",
      "FromEmail": "emailaddress",
      "FromName": "Name",
      "MailinglistId": [
        3623322857
      ],
      "MailinglistName": [
        "Just a name"
      ],
      "NewsletterId": 5726778,
      "NewsletterName": "Just a name",
      "NewsletterSubject": "",
      "SendDate": "/Date(1568020620000+0200)/",
      "SendQueueId": 2482323282,
      "StatusCode": 2,
      "StatusMessage": "Sent"
    }
  ]
}

 

Later in that flow a want to create a record in Dynamics CRM with that date in a date only field, so I need to convert 

 

/Date(1568020620000+0200)/   to  a timestamp with format 'yyyy-MM-dd'

 

How can I achieve this, really appreciate some help 🙂

Thanks

Re: Date conversion

Hi @swaseb 

 

This is what you need to do.

To convert the date I referenced this link

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Flows/Got-a-recipe-for-converting-a-unix-timestamp-to-a...

 

The first compose expression is as follows:

first(split(last(split(items('Apply_to_each')?['SendDate'], '(')),'+'))
 
Next compose expression is as follows:
addseconds('1970-1-1', Div(int(outputs('Compose_2')),1000),'yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm:ss')
 
This is my test result:

Re: Date conversion

@swaseb 

Take a look at the formatDateTime() expression .  You can use it to convert any valid date/time to a yyyy-MM-dd format or any other date/time format.

Re: Date conversion

Thanks @abm ,

 

Worked like a charm, though I had to "int" the second expression and use "+" as splitter to get rid of the figures after the plus sign as the flow did not think it was a valid date string.  

 

int(first(split(last(split(items('Apply_to_each')?['SendDate'], '(')),'+')))
 
Big thanks and have a nice week.

Re: Date conversion

Hi @swaseb 

 

Glad to hear that it is working. I have edited my earlier reply by remvoing the hardcoded expression date function.

 

Thanks
