@POR160893 - You are using custom visualization from Splunkbase - https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/4370/#/details


I don't think that visualization supports any customization around the date format to use as of now.

You can either contact the Developer to see if they have more information that what is documented or if they are willing to do enhancement what you need.

Or if you have JavaScript experties you can create your own custom visualization similar to this one by following - https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/SplunkCloud/latest/AdvancedDev/CustomVizTutorial 

  • This is definitely not a quick resolution, but you will be able to do anything that you like.


I hope this helps!!!


There is clearly a way to do it with this app as the sample diagram I sent on my post comes from code I found online which also uses this type of visualization:https://community.splunk.com/t5/Splunk-Search/help-with-timeline-viz-needed/m-p/485846

I am just having trouble understanding what part of the code refers to the dates on top of the chart 😞

@anmolpatel  can you please help as you wrote this code initially?
