Try this (problems in LINE_BREAKER, TIME_PREFIX, and TIME_FORMAT and MAX_TIMESTAMP_LOOKAHEAD😞

TIME_PREFIX = <date>
TIME_FORMAT = %Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S
MAX_TIMESTAMP_LOOKAHEAD = 19
SHOULD_LINEMERGE = False
LINE_BREAKER = (<\/row>)
TRUNCATE = 0
KV_MODE=XML

Whenever you modify LINE_BREAKER, you should always use SHOULD_LINEMERGE = False.

Also, why are you using image links instead of pasting text? Then we have to type it all in (among other annoyances and problems).

Hi Everyone,

I have tried below configuration setting in props.conf
props.conf
alt text

But it shows event associated timestamp as 2015-08-08T00:00:00

Please guide me where I am going wrong?

Thanks, cheers

I believe the TIME_FORMAT string won't match your data because of the "T00:00:00".
