Realtime Date Filter

Overview #

A Realtime Date Filter contains an array of STRING values that represent different date/time intervals. These intervals are all relative to the current date/time, which means they assume the current time and then use an interval to determine how far back in time to go. The values range from “Last 5 Minutes” to “Last 5 Years”.
