Splunk Enterprise Security

Earliest and latest time URL parameter

Hi, I have a scheduled search in Splunk with the following link in the description field [1] and would like to capture the 'earliest=' part of the URL to match the actual event time AND have the 'latest=' part of the URL to be 5 minutes after the event time.

Raw scheduled search link:
[1] https://splunkserver.blah/en-US/app/search/search?q=$search$&earliest=$trigger_time$&latest=$trigger...

Example scenerio:

Event time: 2/10/20 8:15:13.000 AM

Search query: index=windows EventCode=4624 LogonType=3 User=john.smith

When the alert triggers, the above scheduled search link turns into something like this:
[2] https://splunkserver.blah/en-US/app/search/search?q=index=windows EventCode=4624 LogonType=3 User=john.smith&earliest=1581282963.14079&latest=1581282963.14079

When I open the link above [2], I get an error of 'Invalid latest_time: latest_time must be after ealiest_time.'. The epoch time captured is the time of when the alert triggered.

Does anyone know how to capture the actual event time?

Thanks, that worked! Is it possible to have the 'earliest=' and 'latest=' have -/+ 300 epoch (5 mins) from the event time?
