Formatedatetime ISO error

Hey,

 

I am having an issue with a date format, the captured date is parsed into . variable and has the format dd/mm/yyyy and i want to convert it to yyyy-mm-dd

 

I am using this expression - formatDateTime(variables('Hire_date'),'yyyy-MM-dd')

 

But thew compose action fails with 

 

Unable to process template language expressions in action 'Compose' inputs at line '1' and column '49609': 'In function 'formatDateTime', the value provided for date time string '23/11/2019' was not valid. The datetime string must match ISO 8601 format.'

 

I'm struggling to understand what I am doing wrong in the compose step.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi @Jonnyphoto 

 

You need to use convertTimeZone. See this link below.

Hi,

 

No I don't think this answers the question.

 

I am trying to change 23/11/2019 to 2019-11-23

 

Thanks.

My compose step has this expression

 

convertTimeZone(variables('Hire_date'),'UTC','W. Europe Standard Time','yyyy-MM-dd')
 
but that fails with the same error
