The following are the spec and example files for times.conf.
# Copyright (C) 2005-2010 Splunk Inc. All Rights Reserved. Version 4.1.5 # # This file contains possible attribute/value pairs for creating custom time # ranges. # # To set custom configurations, place a times.conf in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local/. # For help, see times.conf.example. You must restart Splunk to enable configurations. # # To learn more about configuration files (including precedence) please see the documentation # located at http://www.splunk.com/base/Documentation/latest/Admin/Aboutconfigurationfiles [<timerange_name>] * The token to be used when accessing time ranges via the API or command line * A times.conf file can contain multiple stanzas. label = <string> * The textual description used by the UI to reference this time range * Required earliest_time = <relative_time_identifier> * The relative time identifier string that represents the earliest event to to return, inclusive. * Optional. If omitted, no earliest time bound is used. latest_time = <relative_time_identifier> * The relative time identifier string that represents the latest event to to return, exclusive. * Optional. If omitted, no latest time bound is used. NOTE: events that occur in the future (relative to the server timezone) may be returned. order = <integer> * The key on which all custom time ranges are sorted, ascending. * The default time range selector in the UI will merge and sort all time ranges according to the 'order' key, and then alphabetically. * Optional. Default value is 0. sub_menu = <submenu name> * if present, the time range is to be shown in the given submenu instead of in the main menu. * the value for this key must be the label key of an existing stanza name, and that stanza name must have an is_sub_menu = True key * Optional. If omitted the given time option will display in the main menu. is_sub_menu = <boolean> * If True, the given item is only the 'opener' element for a submenu. * stanzas containing this key can still be assigned an order value to set the placement within the main menu, but can not themselves have latest_time nor earliest_time keys.
