I recently needed to create a datetime product attribute programatically in Magento 2. When looking for it on the Internet, all the information I found was outdated. It’s really easy to do so.

Use this for the attribute creation and it will be displayed as datetime in the backoffice right away, without any ui_component customization:

                'group' => 'Advanced Pricing',
                'label' => 'Offer Start Time',
                'type' => 'datetime',
                'input' => 'datetime',
                'input_renderer' => 'Velanapps\Test\Block\Adminhtml\Form\Element\Datetime',
                'class' => 'validate-date',
                'backend' => 'Magento\Catalog\Model\Attribute\Backend\Startdate',
                'frontend' => 'Magento\Eav\Model\Entity\Attribute\Frontend\Datetime',
                'required' => false,
                'global' => \Magento\Eav\Model\Entity\Attribute\ScopedAttributeInterface::SCOPE_STORE,
                'visible' => true,
                'user_defined' => true,
                'default' => '',
                'searchable' => true,
                'filterable' => true,
                'filterable_in_search' => true,
                'visible_in_advanced_search' => true,
                'comparable' => false,
                'visible_on_front' => false,
                'used_in_product_listing' => true,
                'unique' => false
