How do I convert a timestamp?

Builder

Hi,

I have a field with timestamp value "2017-09-21T20:48:48.535427Z" in format. I need to convert it to "09/21/2017 3:48:48 PM", Please advise?

@kiran331, you would also need to confirm as to what is your Time field name and whether it is epoch timestamp or string timestamp.

If it is string time stamp i.e. the field Time contains string time value as per your given example, then you need to first convert the same to epoch time using strptime() and then use strftime() to convert to the required format.

If the Time field contains epoch time then you would only require strftime() to convert from epoch to string time as per your format. Following is run anywhere search as per your question. PS first two pipes are used to mock up Time field with test value. You can replace the same with your search and time field name accordingly.

| eval TimeStringConverted=strftime(strptime(Time,"%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S.%6N"),"%m/%d/%Y %H:%M:%S %p")
| table Time TimeStringConverted
