dateTime(parts: DateTimeFactory): DateTime

Creates a DateTime value from values specified for month, day, hour, minutes, seconds, and timezone fields.

Introduced in DataWeave version 2.4.0.


Name Description


Number values for year, month, day, hour, minutes, and seconds fields followed by a TimeZone value for the the timezone field. Valid values are numbers between 1 and 12 for the month, 1 through 31 for the day, 0 through 23 for the hour, 0 through 59 for minutes, and 0 through 60 (not inclusive; the field accepts 59.99, for example) for seconds. You can specify the name-value pairs in any order, but the output is ordered by default as a DateTime value, such as 2012-10-11T10:10:10-03:00. The input fields are parts of a DateTimeFactory type.


This example shows how to create a value of type DateTime.
