Converts unixtime of the BIGINT type into a date value of the DATETIME type.

Syntax

datetime from_unixtime(bigint <unixtime>)

Parameters

unixtime: required. A date value of the BIGINT type in the UNIX format. The value of this parameter is accurate to the second. If the input value is of the STRING, DOUBLE, or DECIMAL type and the MaxCompute V1.0 data type edition is used in your project, the input value is implicitly converted into the BIGINT type before calculation.

Return value

A value of the DATETIME type is returned. The return value is in the yyyy-mm-dd hh:mi:ss format. If the value of unixtime is null, null is returned.
Note In the Hive-compatible data type edition where set odps.sql.hive.compatible=true; is run, if the input value is of the STRING type, a date value of the STRING type is returned.

Sample data

This section provides sample source data for you to understand how to use date functions. In this topic, a table named mf_date_fun_t is created and data is inserted into the table. Sample statements:
create table if not exists mf_date_fun_t(
    id      int,
    date1   date,
    datetime1   datetime,
    timestamp1 timestamp,
    date2   date,
    datetime2   datetime,
    timestamp2 timestamp,
    date3 string,
    date4 bigint);
insert into mf_date_fun_t values
