Convert JSON Date from external OData to YYYYMMDD in ABAP Program

2495 Views Last edit Jun 26, 2020 at 03:45 PM 2 rev

Hi SAP Experts,

I am calling an external OData Service in my SAP ECC System (Netweaver version 7.0) using CL_HTTP_CLIENT.

When I call the service, I get the Date in JSON format, which the Unix/Epoch Format : “\/Date(1567981296000)\/”

As per the Unix format this value means 01.01.1970 + 1567981296000 seconds.

I want to convert this date into a regular SAP date-time format (YYYYMMDD HH:MM:SS) in my ABAP Code.

However, I'm not able to find any readymade FM which can do this conversion and give me the real date.

Can someone please provide the solution for this?
