Manually create a notable event with a pre-determined timestamp

I am trying to manually create 500 new notable events that all have the same timestamp.
I have not been able to find a way to do this, even though I read the Splunk manual for manually creating notable events.
Does anyone have any idea how to do this, or could point me to the right direction?

Eventually, we found the answer.
Uploading a file with meaningless text created events (approx an event for each line of text), as needed.

You can manually create notables by appending | sendalert notable at the end of a search. I would write a script to send an API search 500 times.

Thanks for the answer!
Unfortunately, using a script won't work as the events won't have the exact same timestamp
