This section describes how timestamps are represented across the API

All records returned by our API have a set of timestamps attached for reference. You'll find two fields: created_at and updated_at.

  • created_at: The created timestamp is the datetime that the record was created.
  • updated_at: The updated timestamp is the datetime of the last update to that record.

These timestamps adhere to the ISO 8601 standard. For example - January 1, 2020 at 02:54:27 Africa/Lagos would be represented as 2020-01-01T02:54:27+01:00

Supplying dates

When supplying date values to the API, they always have to be provided in the format YYYY-MM-DD; for instance, 2020-12-01 for December 1, 2020.



All date times supplied to the API are accepted against the WAT timezone and converted to UTC during storage
