Use Expressions Evaluator with Field Expression like so, ${time:extractStringFromDate(time:createDateFromStringTZ(record:value('/Date'),'UTC',"MM/dd/yy HH:mm:ss"), "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss")}.

Hi Veerat and Everyone,

I noticed this a common question asked by many newcomers to StreamSets Data Collector, so I created a gist which one can download and import as a pipeline:

Sample gist of how to convert a date string

It's a working example of a couple of ways to convert a date string value into a different value.

Be safe!! J3
