Substract 10 minutes from TimeDate.UtcNow()

Hello I have a problem with subtracting minutes from time now in UTC timezone. The problem if reformatting the date 

 

Expression.Error: We cannot convert the value #datetimezone(2023, 5, 5, 8, 17, 6.4582182, 0, 0) to type DateTime.
Details:
Value=5/5/2023 8:17:06 AM +00:00
Type=[Type]

 

 

 

 

 

let
    // get the current UTC time
    utcNow = DateTimeZone.UtcNow(),

    // convert UTC time to the local time zone
    localTime = DateTimeZone.ToLocal(utcNow),

    // subtract 10 minutes from the local time
    tenMinutesAgo = localTime - #duration(0, 0, 10, 0),

    // convert the local time to a DateTime value
    dateTimeValue = DateTimeZone.ToLocal(tenMinutesAgo),

    // format the local time as a string in the ISO 8601 format
    formattedTime = DateTime.ToText(dateTimeValue, "yyyy-MM-ddTHH:mm:ss"),

    // construct the API URL with the formatted time parameter
    apiUrl = "MY API URL" & "?group=ba5bd6e6-d513-42b7-8a68-5830d67a32a6" & "&after=" & formattedTime,

    // make the API request and parse the JSON response
    Source = Json.Document(Web.Contents(apiUrl, [Headers=[Authorization="token MY API TOKEN"]])),
    #"Converted to Table" = Table.FromRecords({Source}),
    #"Expanded results" = Table.ExpandListColumn(#"Converted to Table", "results"),​

Hi @peter_werk ,

 

If you want to format the datetime to a fixed format. You could do as follows.

formattedTime =Number.ToText(Date.Year(dateTimeValue))&"-"&Text.PadStart(Number.ToText(Date.Month(dateTimeValue)),0,"2")&"-"&Text.PadStart(Number.ToText(Date.Day(dateTimeValue)),0,"2")&"T"&Text.PadStart(Number.ToText(Time.Hour(dateTimeValue)),0,"2")&":"&Text.PadStart(Number.ToText(Time.Minute(dateTimeValue)),0,"2")&":"&Text.PadStart(Number.ToText(Number.RoundUp(Time.Second(dateTimeValue))),2,"0"),
