I am trying to implement strptime command on my lookup named test.csv, which has fields _time, hits with data from Aug-12 to Oct-21.
I created a scheduled job to update my lookup dynamically everyday at 3:00 AM with yesterday's data. So, on Oct-23rd, my lookup got updated with Oct-22 data.
The issue is, while running the below command, I am getting blank values for _time field, where as hits field is coming fine.
|inputlookup test.csv|eval _time=strptime(_time, "%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S")
Thank you all your replied. I figured out what is causing the issue.
The time format in the initial lookup is "%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S". When my job is appending the lookup, the time stamp is being saved in epoch which is causing issue when I am using strptime command.
