Need milliseconds in Source timestamp in IV

Currently in IV we have field "sourceTs":"2021-02-24T18:42:01Z" but it does not contain milliseconds in it.

What is your industry? Retail
How will this idea be used?

Omni publish parallels inventory updates and the frequency of such updates can sometimes be in milliseconds for same product . So to differentiate the latest update we need to filter it based on the milliseconds .

    Can you try again with the ISO 8601 data format (e.g. 2022-11-07T00:25:00.073876Z)?

    Hello Sunay. One of our engineers checked the code and even though the documentation does not reflect it, the solution should actually have the time precision to three decimal places. (e.g. "2021-02-24T18:42:01.000Z")

    Can you recheck this and confirm the behavior you are seeing?
