HTTP request filter by date

I am using an HTTP request module to access MongoDB.
I am trying to filter records based on a date range.
The date field in MDB is called createdAt and it has values like this:
I cannot retrieve any data.
This is my debug query:
“database”: “{{1.MONGO_DB}}”,
“dataSource”: “{{1.MONGO_DATASOURCE}}”,
“collection”: “userEvent”,
“filter”: {
“createdAt”: “2023-10-19T14:12:56.791+00:00”
This returns no documents and yet the date has been lifted directly from MDB.
I have tried to parse the date in
{{parseDate(“2023-10-19T14:12:56.791+00:00”; “YYYY-MM-DDTHH:mm:ss.SS”; “GMT”)}}

But the output of this looks like this: 2023-10-19T14:12:56.791Z
This does not work I am guessing because of the Z which inserts
I tried this too: {{parseDate(“2023-10-19T14:12:56.791”; “YYYY-MM-DDTHH:mm:ss.SS”; “GMT”)}}, same problem

Any ideas plse?

PS I am assuming once i crack this i can use $gte and $lt for my date range.

For the benefit of the community I finally managed to crack this one. The target date is createdAt:

“filter”: {
“createdAt”: {
“$gte”: {
“$date”: “2023-10-20T23:00:00+00:00”
“$lte”: {
“$date”: “2023-11-01T23:00:00+00:00”
et voila!
