Subject CONVERT_TZ for TIMESTAMP column
Date Fri, 02 Sep 2016 08:08:07 GMT
Hi folks,

I've been tripped up recently by Phoenix auto-converting to GMT (from
phoenix.query.dateFormatTimeZone), which I've now set to UTC. I'm on
Phoenix 4.4 in the Ambari/HDP stack.

I'd like to do some retrieval and aggregation based on the client's local
time zone, so I'm using:

*SELECT CONVERT_TZ("iso_8601", 'UTC', 'Asia/Kuala_Lumpur') FROM TEST LIMIT

But I'm getting:

*Error: ERROR 203 (22005): Type mismatch. expected: [DATE] but was:

in Squirrel.

My schema (cut down) is:

*  "iso_8601" TIMESTAMP NOT NULL*

Just for reference: the time part is important. I don't just want to
convert 2016-01-01, I need to convert 2016-01-01 01:00:00 to the local
equivalent at 2016-01-01 09:00:00.

The docs state timestampTerm is a valid argument, so am I missing something

The alternative is I set Phoenix to store all dates in my local timezone,
but I'd really rather store in UTC.

Thanks for any help you can offer,
