Recently, I've been building a handful of Azure Logic Apps that work with Stripe webhooks.
Stripe will commonly use Epoch time for it's dates.
But Epoch time is pretty useless for anything that is human-facing, and it's not necessarily the default for a lot of Microsoft solutions.
I needed a way in Azure Logic Apps to easily convert an Epoch Date into a readable format.
Epoch Time is the number of seconds that have surpassed since Midnight, January 1st, 1970. This is also commonly known as
Converting the time is pretty straight-forward, Epoch time is just the number of seconds since 1970-01-01 and Azure Logic Apps has a handy
addToTime method we can use.
addToTime('1970-01-01T00:00:00Z', [EPOCH TIME HERE], 'second')
And ta-da! Your Epoch Time is now in a much easier to use format!
