Time Parameters

    time_type (enum) (optional): parses/formats value according to this
    type
      Default: float
      Available values:
        float: seconds from Epoch + microseconds (e.g.
        1510544836.154709)
        unixtime: seconds from Epoch (e.g. 1510544836)
        unixtime_millis (since v1.11.4): milliseconds from Epoch
        (e.g. 1510544836154)
        unixtime_micros (since v1.20.0): microseconds from Epoch
        (e.g. 1510544836154709)
        unixtime_nanos (since v1.20.0): nanoseconds from Epoch
        (e.g. 1510544836154709804)
        string: use format specified by time_format, local time or time
        zone
    time_format (string) (optional): processes value according to the
    specified format. This is available only when time_type is string.
      Default: nil

        For more details about formatting, see
        For more details about parsing, see
        %iso8601 (only for parsing)
        Use %N to parse/format with sub-second precision, because
        strptime does not support
        %3N, %6N, %9N, and %L.
    localtime (bool) (optional): if true, uses local time. Otherwise,
    UTC is used. This is exclusive with utc.
      Default: true
    utc (bool) (optional): if true, uses UTC. Otherwise, local time is
