Datetime (ISO 8601)

An ISO 8601 datetime is a string that encodes a date and time according to the ISO 8601 standard. The date and time:

1
January 3rd 2017 19:45:01 and 321 milliseconds

Is encoded into the following ISO 8601 string:

1
"2017-01-03T19:45:01.3210000"

ISO 8601 datetimes can include an optional time zone designator. If not present, the DSP will assume that the time is expressed in the UTC time format.

The DSP writes UTC datetimes in JSON output, for example:

1
2
3
{
    "SomeDateTime": "2017-01-03T19:45:01.3210000Z"
}

Z is the zone designator for the zero UTC offset according to ISO 8601.
