Languages

Built-in, C++, C#, Java.

 

Parameters

Name

Type

Description

datetime

xs:dateTime

Provides the xs:dateTime value to be used as input.

duration

xs:duration

Provides the xs:duration value.

 

An example duration is P1Y2M3DT04H05M59S, where:

 

"P" is the period designator, and is mandatory;

The rest of the characters denote, in this order: 1 Year, 2 Months, 3 Days, T (Time designator), 04 Hours, 05 Minutes, 59 Seconds.

 

If the minus character appears before the "P" designator, this indicates a negative duration, for example: -P1D.

 

Example

Let's assume that the input datetime value is 2001-12-17T09:30:02+05:00. If the duration is P10D (10 days), the function's result is 2001-12-27T00:00:00+05:00.

 

To obtain yesterday's date, connect the now function to the datetime input. In the mapping below, the period -P1D means "minus 1 day", so the mapping returns yesterday's date.
