About Date format


Recommended Posts

Hello, Plastic Team,

when querying with a date condition, for example, cm find changeset where date>'10/09/2010' on repository 'test1', how will plastic server interpret my date string '10/09/2010'? Oct. 09 or Sep. 10? How can I tell Plastic server my date format?

Hi Oscar,

Are you really in China?

If you check the cm find command you'll see there's a --dateformat option

cm find

Gets a list of objects following search criteria.


cm find object [where conditions] [on repositories] [options]

object: Object type to find.

conditions: Search conditions on an object

Hi Oscar,

the date is parsed in the client and uses the culture that you have configured your Plastic client with.

So, if your Plastic client is set to Spanish, 10/09/2010 will be interpreted as Sept 10th. If set to English, as Oct 9th.

From the command line, you can force the format with the --dateformat argument. Try cm find --help to find some samples.

The date format used there is fully documented here:
