Painless current date

alerting

(Daryn) #1

I'm trying to write a painless script that will return the current date minus 2hours in a format like this - 2017-10-03T11:42:44.279Z

Can I do this in painless?

The current date can not be accessed in a script currently. but you can use the ctx.trigger.scheduled_time or ctx.trigger.triggered_time for this - this date is usually around the current date.

Substracting a date would work like this:

Instant.ofEpochMilli(ctx.trigger.scheduled_time.getMillis()).plus(Duration.ofDays(-2))

hope this helps
