Hi @Rajath_Nair

You can look in the base code of Frappe. How to import the datetime module.

Thank You!

can you also help me with how to check the datatype of the variable because type() is not working and in isinstance() i am unable to check the datatype.

@Rajath_Nair you can do a try exceptto see if the variable given through the api is valid or not , if it’s not you can throw an exception

thank you
