Using the datetime() Method for Groovy Time Data

Neptune provides the datetime method for specifying dates and times for queries sent in the Gremlin Groovy variant. This includes the Gremlin Console, text strings using the HTTP REST API, and any other serialization that uses Groovy.

Important

This only applies to methods where you send the Gremlin query as a text string. If you are using a Gremlin Language Variant, you must use the native date classes and functions for the language. For more information, see the next section, Using Native Date and Time for GLV Time Data.

You can use the datetime method to store and compare dates:

g.V('3').property('date',datetime('2001-02-08'))
g.V().has('date',gt(datetime('2000-01-01')))
