queryStartTime() operator returns the start time of the search time range in milliseconds. You can use it in combination with queryEndTime() to establish times and ranges for your non-continuous queries.
For dashboards in live mode or real time scheduled searches, queryTimeRange() is a more suitable option. In most cases the results would still be the same as using queryStartTime() and queryEndTime(), but the latter can be off from the real range by a few milliseconds.
queryStartTime() as <field>
- An alias is required.
To get a duration of your query:
| (queryEndTime() - queryStartTime()) as duration
To list start time, end time, and duration:
| queryStartTime() as starttime
| queryEndTime() as endtime
| (endtime - starttime) as duration
