ISO8601 as default date format on many locations. One can see this in transforms on the
dateFormat transform. If one does not specify the
ISO8601 format will be used. If one does not specify the
ISO8601 format will be used. The
dateCompare transform expects all data to be in the
ISO8601 format for it to work.
It seems odd to me that the
dateMath transform is not adhering to this standard. Although it does expect the input to be in the
ISO8601 format for it to work, the output oddly uses a different format (yyyy-MM-dd’T’HH:mm). The documentation even mentions this and tells us to always nest this transform in another
dateFormat transform as workaround to this break of convention.
I understand that since many tenant are currently using the transform in the way it works now, it would be difficult to fix this break of convention. But could we get another parameter in the
dateMath transform, where we can specify the
outputFormat directly? Then we do not have to nest our transforms each time we want to use the
