Object Validation node returns Unsupported type: timestamp error

Hi, trying to create firestore doc via api call based on this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-RCaOhz_eE. the main workflow works. but i want to add "created_at" field. In validation part i have { field: 'created_at', required: false, type: 'timestamp' }, and my body json is like "created_at": "2024-07-05T02:08:55.000Z", even if i change it into actual timestamp like this - still not working "created_at": 1720122473, Whit such config, the object validation node returns an error: Unsupported type: timestamp Any idea how i can put actual timestamp to my firestore doc?

I am using timestamp when updating field values for Firestore documents. In node logic code you could modify the first line to this: import { Firestore, Timestamp } from '@google-cloud/firestore'; then you should be able to get the right time format by using: "created_at": Timestamp.now() //In my case I have coded to update the timestamp value right in the node logic, instead of having it as an input value. Note: I am not a coder myself, I used AI to help me create the code for my node, but it works for me 🙂

Cool idea! Thanks! But, just for clarification. In wich node you put this? my workflow is like that: rest trigger -> object validation node -> branch node -> (is success) firestore create doc;

You should add it to "firestore create doc;"
