Invalid Earliest_time in Splunk dashboard


I am trying to make a dashboard with a custom time by editing the XML and giving the time in tag. I have tried all possible time formats as given in the document but everytime i am getting an error "Invalid earliest_time".
I have given the sample of the xml below.

Search String
Dashboard Title

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks in Advance.

In poking through the returned data - when it did work it looks like the format should be.


Example: 2015-05-02T07:30:00

You can also append your timezone at the end as well. Really this is way harder than it should be.

In XML You can specify the time as relative time or absolute time. For absolute time it should be in epoch format.

Check this link. http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.1.2/Viz/PanelreferenceforSimplifiedXML#earliestTime

For relative time modifiers check section Specify relative time ranges in your search in http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.1.2/Search/Specifytimemodifiersinyoursearch
