timezone string Time zone if type of this column is timestamp. If not set, default_timezone is used. optional
format string Timestamp format if type of this column is timestamp. %Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S.%6N %z by default

Why does this need?

Some output plugin cannot use a formatter plugin, because they are not inherited FileOutputPlugin, but sometimes they need formatters. In that case, this plugin is useful. For example, embulk-output-bigquery


  - type: to_csv
    column_name: payload
    delimiter: "\t"
    newline: CRLF
    newline_in_field: LF
    charset: UTF-8
    quote_policy: MINIMAL
    quote: '"'
    escape: "\\"
    null_string: "\\N"
    default_timezone: 'UTC'
      time: {format: '%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S', timezone: 'America/Los_Angeles'}

Run the example

$ ./gradlew classpath
$ embulk run example/config.yml -Ilib


$ ./gradlew gem  # -t to watch change of files and rebuild continuously
