Why does "all-time" mean two different things in a report vs. a search?




"All-time" in the search interface means "now and in the future". "Since" in the search interface means "since, up until now". I have always just accepted that "since" behaves weirdly in this way


Today I discovered that "all-time" to the report scheduler means "up until now". That is, it does not populate `dispatch.latest_time` in `savedsearches.conf`. To me it seems extremely dangerous to have two different meanings of "all time" in the search interface vs. the scheduler, especially because you might have all-time search in the search interface that then doesn't work as a savedsearch


What is the logic behind this?

actually there are two different “all time”. First all time for normal search ( since now) and second one for real time search (to future). Of course the 2nd one needs that you have real time search capability.
