Getting Data In

REST API - error "Invalid earliest_time."

Explorer

Use Splunk SDK JAVA, I'd use the REST API.
If the settings as follows causes an error.

code:

Args queryArgs = new Args();
queryArgs.put("earliest_time",  "8/21/2014:00:00:00");
queryArgs.put("latest_time",    "8/31/2014:23:59:59");

error:

[Fatal Error] :1:1: Unexpected end of file.
Exception in thread "main" com.splunk.HttpException: HTTP 400 -- <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<response>

Are there any workaround for this?

In poking through the returned data - when it did work it looks like the format should be.

YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS

Example: 2015-05-02T07:30:00

You can also append your timezone at the end as well. Really this is way harder than it should be.

The format of the time strings don't look right. Have you tried "8/31/2014T00:00:00"?

queryArgs.put("earliesttime", "8/21/2014T00:00:00");
queryArgs.put("latest
time", "8/31/2014T23:59:59");

The same error occurs.
