I am not getting expected output in time value. I am passing value as 20190619131800Z through query parameter and trying to format it according to Salesforce User Timezone. I am using lightning:inputField in lightning component to display this DateTime value. Need urgent help around this.

component.find("verificationDate").set("v.value", $A.localizationService.formatDateTime(component.get("v.SF_VerificationDate"),'YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ss-hh:mm'));

Expected Output- 19.06.2019 13.18; Actual Output- 19.06.2019 04.00

In your Lightning Page, go to your Javascript Console. and paste the following snippet

eval("$A.localizationService.formatDateTime('20190619131800Z ','YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ss-hh:mm');");

It will give output as "Invalid Date"

Now coming to the documentation.

The date parameter can be a String, Number, or most typically a JavaScript Date. If you provide a String value, use ISO 8601 format to avoid parsing warnings.

20190619131800Z is not in ISO 8601 format.

You have to convert 20190619131800Z into 2019-06-19T13:18:00Z for localization service to work. You can do that using string manipulation
