hi @paola92
this does look like an issue with timezones.
if splunk is logging this event at 11:42 there is no way this can actually end at 16:42 , irrespective of how the field end_time gets populated unless...
your event occurs at a different timezone from the one where your splunk is running..
Can you check the above out, you can set timezones quite easily ref

The issue was solved when I put the timezone in the connection configuration.
