Date time value reader


Introduction to the date time value reader in Sitecore Data Exchange Framework.

This value reader returns a date time object. You use it to ensure a value read from a source object is a date time object.

Expected source object type

String Format

If a value is specified and the source object is a string, the value reader expects the source object to be a date in the specified format. If the source object is not a string, this value is not used. For details on the supported options, see Guid.ToString(String).

Read Date Only

If selected, the date time object includes only the date. If cleared, the date time object includes both the date and the time.
