We have a requriement to load data into endeca which is of type "Date" and we should be able to sort it by date as well.
Also,we have a requirement to create a property by reading the system date.
Please advise what are the changes required?
We have the data in the format 11/12/2013,I tried creating a property by name "Date" and of the type "Datetime" and mapped it to source data,but it is not showing up in the ref app.
Whether we need to change the above source data format(11/12/2013) to a different format?If yes,what are the changes required?
Also,for the 2nd requirement,I guess we can add a manipulaotr,but please advise on why the property is not showing up in ref app?
Please note that we donot use latitude.
Have a look in the Basic Development Guide, there is a specific format for Date/Time properties that they need to conform to.
A simpler approach is to reformat as YYYYMMDD (so 20131211) in either an XML manipulator or in your data extract code, set the property as Type=Numeric then sort by that.
