GMT formats for a date field in an API document

A date field must use one of the Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) formats supported by HTTP1.1. For more information about the formats, see HTTP1.1 parameters.

The following line shows the three formats:
HTTP-date = rfc1123-date | rfc850-date | asctime_date

Format 1

rfc1123-date = wkday "," SP day(2) SP month SP year(4) SP time SP "GMT"

A number in parentheses indicates the number of characters.
Example: Thu, 26 Sep 2018 15:30:26 GMT

Format 2

rfc850-date = weekday "," SP day(2) "-" month "-" year(2) SP time SP "GMT"

A number in parentheses indicates the number of characters.
Example: Thursday, 26-Sep-18 15:30:26 GMT

Format 3

asctime-date = wkday SP month SP day(2 | SP 1) SP time SP year(4)

For a single-digit date value, a leading zero is not permitted. Enter a space as the placeholder.
A number in parentheses indicates the number of characters.
Example: Thu Sep  8 15:30:26 2018
