$content.lastModificationDate.getTime() does not returning timestamp

I am trying to write a user macro which will return difference days between current date and last modified date. 

But, $content.lastModificationDate.getTime() does not returning anything. 

Can someone please help?

Yeah, some of the methods are a bit funky. Here is code I have used to get the year for a copyright

#set ($year = $lastModificationDate.getYear()+1900)

But I think what you need to do is use the date formatter. For example,


And then work your magic from there.


And here is another example that might help you:

#set ( $dateInfo=$action.dateFormatter.formatGivenString("yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss Z", $content.lastModificationDate) )

Hi @bill_bailey 

Thanks so much for the response. I think, I need to timestamp. 




This returns date Dec 13, 2021 16:25 Mon . 


If I get the timeStamp, then I can find the difference between last modified and created. 


Do you know how to get it?
