strftime is used to convert unix timestamp to human readable format.

you should use strptime to convert time which is already in human readable format if you need to format it.

| makeresults | eval activityDateTime="2020-09-09T18:21:12.2685607Z"
| eval time = strftime(strptime(activityDateTime,"%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S"),"%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S")

What do you mean by raw time field? What fields do you have? Do you get anything in the time field you created?

Looks like you need to parse the activityDateTime with strptime and then format that with strftime

 

eval time = strptime(strptime(activityDateTime, "%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S.%Q"),"%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S")

Or you could just parse the activityDateTime string into an epoch time and the use fieldformat on the time field for display purposes
