Hello, I created a series of dashboards that will automatically update when data from a monthly scan is ingested. In this scenario, I have a scan that runs on the 18th of every month and automatically gets sent to Splunk shortly after the scan concludes. In this case, the scan typically finishes between 0330 and 0500. I have the "Advanced" time range configured as follows:
@mon17+3h - @mon17+6h
The issue I'm running into is that by the time the first of the month rolls around, all information on that dashboard resets because it now views the '@mon' as the current month, and there is obviously no data for 18 days into the future.
Is there a better way to configure my search ranges that someone could suggest? I appreciate any and all assistance. Thank you!
I think I copied it wrong in my previous comments. The correct values are earliest:
+11d-1mon@mon+16d+3h and latest=:
+11d-1mon@mon+16d+6h. See this runanywhere sample to see how the time range changes with current date.
| gentimes start=-50 | eval current=starttime | table current| eval earliest=relative_time(current,"+11d-1mon@mon+16d+3h") | eval latest=relative_time(current,"+11d-1mon@mon+16d+6h") | convert ctime(*) as *_human
