I know you can create custom time ranges but not sure about removing them. I'll look deeper in a bit

times.conf

Well, from the documentation, for 30 minutes you'd have a stanza such as:

[last_30_minutes]
label = Last 30 minutes
header_label = in the last 30 minutes
earliest_time = -30m

You would change this stanza to match what times you want. Please see the times.conf documentation for more information. I don't see a way to remove them.

To disable all of the defaults (you'd have to provide your own full list), use

[default]
disabled = True

To just disable a single one of the defaults, replace its disabled flag in your own copy of times.conf by creating a matching stanza, then setting disabled = true:

[last_30_days]
disabled = True

Your own times.conf should go in the local/ subfolder of your custom app.

The default is in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/default/times.conf. You will want to copy that to $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local/times.conf and make your changes there. If your question has been satisfactorily answered, please accept the answer.
