Create Oracle with DATE type not TIMESTAMP type when no fractional seconds are present

Oracle (https://docs.oracle.com/cd/B28359_01/server.111/b28318/datatype.htm#CNCPT413😞

  • DATE = yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss
  • TIMESTAMP  = yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss.ssssss (6 decimal seconds .. and timezone?)

Alteryx (https://help.alteryx.com/2018.3/Reference/DataFieldType.htm😞

  • DATE = yyyy-mm-dd
  • DATETIME  = yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss

In an ideal world the Alteryx DATATIME would map to the Oracle DATE ... and only to the Oracle TIMESTAMP if it had fractional seconds.

 

Currently DATETIMEs get mapped to Oracle TIMESTAMP.
