This function returns the date part of any given timestamp.

Syntax
 datePart(timestamp, timeZone) #Output: Number 
Examples
Parser expressionDescription
datePart({issue.created}, LOCAL)

This example returns the issue creation date, e.g. March 25th, 2020 00:00 as a number in milliseconds.

If the creation date was March 25th, 2020 23:15 the output would be March 25th, 2020 00:00 (in milliseconds).

The time part 23:15 will be removed from the timestamp and will be set to 00:00.
