Environnement variable

I use a Python script get a datetime in Snowflake then i convert it in a format to be able to put this variable when i call the API ( so it becomes dynamic and i dont need to change it manually). Here is a part of my script:

from datetime import datetime

#Get last_import datetime

cursor = context.cursor()
result = cursor.fetchone()[0]
last_import = result.strftime("%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S")
context.updateVariable('starting_date', 'last_import')
print last_import
print starting_date

And there are the result of the print:

How can i update the value of my starting_date environnement variable with the value of last_import so i'll get 2019-06-07T19:00:00 store and not last_import ...

Hi Maxim -

I believe you should not have the last_import variable wrapped in single quotes in the context.updateVariable line of your code. By wrapping it in single quotes, it’s being treated as a string and not as a reference to your variable.

As such, I think you need to update this line from:

context.updateVariable('starting_date', 'last_import')

To this:

context.updateVariable('starting_date', last_import)

Can you try that out and see if that resolves your issue?
