dataflow to capture date and time

arkiboys 9,686 Reputation points

As you see in screen-shot, the ingestionDate shows one hour behind of my time.
Do you see what I can do so that the captured date and time is as same as my computer?
in screen-shot, the first column is using currentUTC
the second column is using currentTimestamp()
Thank you

    Hi @arkiboys ,

    Thankyou for using Microsoft Q&A platform and posting your query.

    As I understand your query here, you want to fetch the current Time according to your current location. Please let me know if my understanding is incorrect.

    To achieve this requirement, you can make use of derived column transformation and using fromUTC function which will convert the timestamp from UTC according to the timezone provided.

    Here is an example of converting to PST and IST using the expression fromUTC(currentUTC(), 'PST') , fromUTC(currentUTC(), 'IST') respectively.


    Hope this will help. Please let us know if any further queries.
