Getting Data In

Reports are not indexed correctly

Path Finder

I have a single search head and configured the props.conf to have DATETIME_CONFIG = CURRENT as I want the data to be indexed at the time Splunk receives the report. I restarted splunk after every change.

Previously I had it set to a field in the report. When I upload a csv and use the correct sourcetype it assigns the current time to the report. When I upload a report via curl through the HEC endpoint it indexes it to the right time. Same thing when I run it through a simple script.

But when the test pipeline runs, it indexes data to the timestamp that is in the report even though it is using the same sourcetype as the other tests I did. Is it possible to add a time field that overrides the sourcetype config? Is there a way to see the actual api request in the splunk internal logs?
