Converter: Datetimes in difference timezones
Converts the datetime in time zone A to the datetime in time zone B. Any time zone can be set for either datetimes. If nothing is set the Workflow Platform time zone will be applied.
Configs
  • A1: Set Datetime data (eg “2021-12-31 20:34”) *#{EL}
  • A2: To consider as time other than Platform, Set Offset (eg”-8″)#{EL}
  • B1: Select DATETIME that stores Converted Datetime (update) *
  • B2: Set Offset Hour for Converted Datetime (eg “+1” “9.5”)#{EL}
  • C: Select NUMERIC that stores Timestamp sec (update)

Notes:
- Convert datetime data using two time zone offsets.
    - Offset values are set in Hour. Decimal notation is also possible. (PST:"-8", JST:"+9")
    - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_zone
- To customize the notification text according to the recipient's timezone, etc.
- Can be converted even in the standard automation "Service Task (Data Assignment)".
    - Setting Example of "Output Datetime" (EL syntax)
        - "#q_dtInputDatetime.addHours( #q_numOutputOffset - #q_numInputOffset )"
        - Assumption: Integer Hour is input in Numeric type data

- 2つのタイムゾーンOffset値を用いて、時刻型データを変換します。

APPENDIX
- Not only Datetime type data but also process start datetime can be converted.
    - "#{#q_dtInputDatetime}"
    - "#{processInstanceStartDatetime}"
- "Date type + static hh:mm" is also acceptable. (processes the string "YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm")
    - "#{#q_date} 00:00"
- The timestamp obtained by this Addon is Unix epoch.
    - Seconds since 1 January 1970 UTC
    - Not the same as the ECMAScript epoch (elapsed Milliseconds), Unix is 1/1000 of ECMAScript

APPENDIX-ja
- 日時型データだけでなく、プロセス開始時刻等も変換できます。
    - "#{#q_dtInputDatetime}"
    - "#{processInstanceStartDatetime}"
- "日付型データ+固定時刻文字列" による指定も可能です。("YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm" の文字列を処理します)
    - "#{#q_date} 00:00"
    - "#{processInstanceStartDatetime}"
- このAddonによって取得されるタイムスタンプは Unix epoch ("経過秒数")です。
    - 協定世界時 (UTC) の1970年1月1日からの経過秒数
    - Unix epoch("経過秒数")は ECMAScript epoch("経過ミリ秒数")の1000分の1となります

Notes

Capture

Converts datetime in timezone A to datetime in timezone B. Any timezone can be set for either datetimes. If not set, the Workflow Platform timezone will be applied.

Appendix

  • Not only Datetime type data but also process start datetime can be converted.
    • “#{#q_dtInputDatetime}”
    • “#{processInstanceStartDatetime}”
  • “Date type + static hh:mm” is also acceptable. (processes the string “YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm”)
    • “#{#q_date} 00:00”
  • The timestamp obtained by this Addon is Unix epoch.
    • Seconds since 1 January 1970 UTC
    • Unix epoch (elapsed seconds) is 1/1000 of the ECMAScript epoch (elapsed Milliseconds)
