Thingworx API : how to get Timestamp ?


Thingworx API : how to get Timestamp ?

Hi , I'm interessted in getting data from Thingowrx API and format it then store it in InfluxDB. 


I'm using Thingworx API as follows: https://thingworxplatforme/Thingworx/Things/Machine_A/Properties 


Where can i get timestamp ? 




Hi Lo_ry


I'm not sure what you mean. Do you just want the current time in Thingworx and send it to Influx? If so, you can look into those 2 lines of code :

var TestVariable1 = new Date();
var TestVariable2 = (new Date()).getTime();

Then you can use those variables and send them as parameters to the service that inserts the data in Influx. You can then decide which is the best format for your needs.


Please let us know if one of those solves your issue. And if not, can you provide more details on what you're trying to accomplish.


You could also use configure ThingWorx to use Influx as persistence provider and make the properties logged, then they are already in Influx.

For this you need to make yourself familiar with Persistence Provider and Value Stream concepts. Both are documented in the help,
