get current date and time and put it in the body of a request (json)

I need to send a request populated with current date and time in the body as Json.

In this format:

"DatumtijdOndertekening": "${__time(yyyy-MM-dd'T'hh:mm:ssX)}"

What do I need to get this working?

 

Thanks,
Mathijs

 

  • If you are using jdk 8, below should work.

     

    You almost there, its trivial.

    {
       "DatumtijdOndertekening" : "${= java.time.OffsetDateTime.now().format(java.time.format.DateTimeFormatter.ofPattern('yyyy-MM-dd\'T\'HH:mm:ssZ'))}"
    }

      Hi nmrao ,

       

      thanks a lot for your reaction. It worked!

       

      Strange thing is, I don't have any Java installed on the machine (Windows-> Control Panel-> Programs and Features doesnt display any Java client installed).

      You have an explanation?

        mgroen2,
        Nice to know that it worked. Can this be closed then?

        Though you don't install java, JRE gets shipped along with SoapUI installation.
