Random Timestamp (RandomTimestampGenerator)

The Random Timestamp generator generates random dates, times, and timestamps that fall within a specified range.
The Random Timestamp generator does not support linking or consistency. You cannot configure differential privacy.
The metadata object is populated from the TimestampRangeMetadata object, which includes:
  • For text columns, the format of the timestamp in the original data.
  • For integer columns, the unit to use for the value. The generator produces a Unix timestamp.
  • If the timestamp format includes dates, the minimum and maximum timestamps. Uses the format yyyy-MM-ddTHH:MM:SSZ.
  • If the timestamp format is time-only, the minimum and maximum timestamps. The date part of the timestamp is ignored. Uses the format yyyy-MM-ddTHH:MM:SSZ.

Example replacements

In the following example replacement for the Random Timestamp generator, the source column is a text column. The format for the timestamps in the original data is yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss. The timestamps occur between November 20, 2022 at 8:57:14 PM and November 21, 2022 at 8:57:14 PM.
{
"name": "start",
"schema": "public",
"table": "users",
"links": [
{
"column": "start",
"table": "users",
"schema": "public",
"metadata": {
"presetId": "RandomTimestampGenerator",
"generatorId": "RandomTimestampGenerator",
"dateTimeFormat": "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss",
"minDate": "2022-11-20T20:57:14Z",
"maxDate": "2022-11-21T20:57:14Z"
}
}
]
}
The following example uses the same range as the previous example, but the column is an integer column. The generator is configured to produce Unix timestamps in seconds.
{
"name": "start",
"schema": "public",
"table": "users",
"links": [
{
"column": "start",
"table": "users",
"schema": "public",
"metadata": {
"presetId": "RandomTimestampGenerator",
"generatorId": "RandomTimestampGenerator",
"unixTimestampFormat": "Seconds",
"minDate": "2022-11-20T20:57:14Z",
"maxDate": "2022-11-21T20:57:14Z"
}
}
]
}
The following example generates time-only values between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM. The date part of the minTime and maxTime values is ignored.
{
"name": "start",
"schema": "public",
"table": "users",
"links": [
{
"column": "start",
"table": "users",
"schema": "public",
"metadata": {
"presetId": "RandomTimestampGenerator",
"generatorId": "RandomTimestampGenerator",
"dateTimeFormat": "HH:mm:ss",
"minTime": "2022-11-20T08:00:00Z",
"maxTime": "2022-11-20T17:00:00Z"
}
}
]
}
