Configure Event Timestamp

Hi,

I would like to know how to configure Splunk so that for each event that I'm feeding to it the system time is used as the event timespamp.

I need to do this because the JSON objects that are fed to Splunk contain keys/value that describe the time(in millies) of some things and this makes Splunk to mismatch the event timestamps for some value that it finds within the JSON object.

Any hint would be greatly appreciated,

You can set it in props.conf. See the docs for details: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/admin/propsconf

props.conf
[mysourcetype]
DATETIME_CONFIG = CURRENT
