UTC_DATE() function in MySQL
  • Last Updated : 07 Oct, 2020

UTC_DATE() function in MySQL is used to check current Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) date. It returns the UTC date value in ‘YYYY-MM-DD’ or YYYYMMDD format, depending on whether the function is used in string or numeric context.

Syntax :

UTC_DATE
   OR
UTC_DATE()

Parameter :
This method does not accept any parameter.

Returns :
It returns the current Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) date.

Example-1 :
Getting the current UTC date using UTC_DATE Function.



SELECT UTC_DATE as CurrUtcDate ;

Output :

CurrUtcDate
2020-10-01

Example-2 :
Getting the current time using UTC_DATE Function in numeric format.

SELECT UTC_DATE + 0 as CurrUtcDate ;

Output :

CurrUtcDate
20201001

Example-3 :
The UTC_DATE function can be used to set value of columns. To demonstrate create a table named DeliveryDetails.

CREATE TABLE DeliveryDetails (
DeliveryId INT AUTO_INCREMENT,
ProductId INT NOT NULL,
ProductName VARCHAR(20) NOT NULL,
Delivered_On DATE NOT NULL,
PRIMARY KEY(DeliveryId)
);

Here, we will use UTC_DATE function when a delivery will be completed. The value in Delivered_On column will be the value given by UTC_DATE Function.

INSERT INTO  
DeliveryDetails(ProductId, ProductName, Delivered_On)
VALUES
(101001, 'Asus ROG', CURRENT_DATE);

Now, checking the DeliveryDetails table :

SELECT * FROM DeliveryDetails;

Output :

DeliveryId ProductId ProductName Delivered_On
1 101001 Asus ROG 2020-10-01
