How to convert time from an inputlookup

Hi,
I need help in converting the time provided by a lookup.

| inputlookup AD_User_LDAP_list
| search cn=jon1
| fields cn, pwdLastSet

I am getting the information like this:

cn pwdLastSet
jon1 06:25.09 AM, Mon 07/15/2019

I tried running:
| eval start=strftime(pwdLastSet, %Y/%m%d)
but nothing has changed, I was getting the same results.

Basically, I am trying to find out when a user password will expire, based on the time it was last set.

Instead of trying to convert dates to calculate the expiration date you can, since you're getting data from AD LDAP, get the info from AD (field: accountExpires) already converted for you.

Still if you want to procede like this use

| eval start=strftime(strptime(pwdLastSet,"%I:%M.%S %p, %a %m/%d/%Y"),"%Y/%m/%d %H:%M:%S")
------------
Hope I was able to help you. If so, an upvote would be appreciated.

for some reason, the eval does not do anything different than before.
anyway, can you point me to where to get the date when an account password will expire? sorry for the question...pretty new to all this 😞

try the eval again. it was missing the hours. just corrected it

the AD field is called accountExpires. check with who created the lookup you're using to see if they can include more fields.
