toTime() function

The toTime() function converts all values in the _value column to times.

Function type: Type conversion


Supported data types: Integer | String | Uinteger

toTime() assumes all numeric input values are nanosecond epoch timestamps.

To convert values in a column other than _value, define a custom function patterned after the function definition, but replace _value with your desired column.
