Local Timezone to UTC

Hi All,

I'm building a custom adobe campaign classic function to convert current date to UTC. But irrespective of what method I use, I'm getting nowhere. Getting below errors.

Custom_SQL_Function.jpgCustom_SQL_Function_Error.jpg

Where am I going wrong? Can we convert Local time to UTC in postgres?

Note: I can do it using JS activity but won't be able to create a custom function.

I have also tried with: select Timestamp with '2019-07-01 10:30:00-05' AT TIME ZONE 'UTC'.

Thanks,

Vidya Shivakumar

Hi vidyas77336264​,
Cant you directly use the option found in properties of workflow.

Hi asariaaara​, Thanks for the suggestion.

What do you mean options in Workflow properties? Timezone field in the General Tab?

This won't help either, when you use GetDate() function it still gives you the DB time which is set to my local time zone.

Thanks,

Vidya

Hi,
Not a pro at SQL, but i guess timestamp will itself reflect timezone of system i.e. current timezone.

Maybe you should simply try without "with timezone Now()".

Let me know about the solution.  

Regards.
