Current UNIX timestamp

Function unix_timestamp() returns the UNIX timestamp of current time. You can also specify a input timestamp value. 

Example:

spark-sql> select unix_timestamp();
unix_timestamp(current_timestamp(), yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss)
1610174099

spark-sql> select unix_timestamp(current_timestamp, 'yyyy-MM-dd');
unix_timestamp(current_timestamp(), yyyy-MM-dd)
1610174365

UNIX timestamp string to date

Function from_unixtime(unix_time, format) can be used to convert UNIX time to Spark SQL date data type. 

Example:

spark-sql> select from_unixtime(1610174365, 'yyyy-MM-dd');
from_unixtime(CAST(1610174365 AS BIGINT), yyyy-MM-dd)
