Hi Team,

I want to get the dateTime of EST in one variable but whenever I use EST in format date function it provides me CST Time.

Hi,

Pass the value for TimeZone as "America/New_York".

Refer to this document Format Date , which talks about timezone values to be configured. It is available in Xtk:Common Schema under TimeZone Enumeration

Thanks,

Hi @harshalp2212386 ,

 

Use below code to get correct timeZone:

var dt= formatDate(getCurrentDate(), "%2D/%2M/%2Y %02H:%2N:%02S", "America/New_York")

 

Thanks,

Jyoti
