time entry in UID XML API

L1 Bithead


We are using the User-ID XML API, but have additional need to add also the time entry from external source.

In example:

                 <entry name="domain\uid1" ip=""/>  # Somehow add entry time=XXXXXX
                 <entry name="domain\uid2" ip=""/>
                 <entry name="domain\uid3" ip=""/>
                 <entry name="domain\uid4" ip=""/>

What do you think. Is is possible with the current software at all? Do you have any other suggestions?

Thank you!

I know that this reply is pretty late and I apologize for that. I'm afraid, but the answer is no. The User-ID Agent takes the time from the time the message was submitted to it.

Can you give me a little bit more detail on the scenario and why you need to add the time value?
