[resolved] Get the current Date into a Schema definition
Hi, I'm runing out of tips trying to handle a default value for a date. Is it possible to get the current date as default value into a metadata schema ?
I've tried TalendDate.getCurrentDate(), new java.util.Date(), sysdate etc... nothing works. I really want to handle it into the metadata, it seems much more "clean" to me, to handle it here, I don't wanna use variables into tmap or tJava that is too tricky, and I want to keep my jobs easy to maintain !
Re: [resolved] Get the current Date into a Schema definition
Hi, You cannot use TalendDate.getCurrentDate() as default value in schema setting. You have to use the expression you already know in the tMap or tJava. The default values in the database will only be used if you do not fill the column and set null as value is always a attempt to fill the column and prevents the database from setting the default value. For default value, please take a look at a KB document:https://help.talend.com/search/all?query=Verifying+default+values+in+a+retrieved+schema&content-lang... Best regards Sabrina
