This function takes input in the form of either a Time or a DateTime. It returns a Number: the value of the minute in the given Time or a DateTime.

Declaration

MINUTE(time) -> minute

datetime (type: DateTime)
Any DateTime.
This is what describes the minute value that the MINUTE function will return.
time (type: Time)
Any Time.
This is what describes the minute value that the MINUTE function will return.

Examples

Assume the first example has access to the following DateTime value:

example_date_and_time = {
"date": {
"day": 1,
"month": 4,
"year": 2021
},
"time": {
"hour": 16,
"minute": 14,
"second": 38,
"millisecond": 0
},
"timeZone": "UTC"
}

The following example takes the time described in example_date_and_time and outputs the number of minutes described:

MINUTE(example_date_and_time) = 14

The above example demonstrates how the MINUTE function behaves when given a DateTime as input. In order to further establish how the MINUTE function behaves when given a Time as input, assume the last example has access to the following Time value:

example_time = {
 "hour": 16,
"minute": 14,
"second": 38,
"millisecond": 0
}

The following example takes the time described in example_time and outputs the number of minutes described:

MINUTE(example_time) = 14
