TLDR Krishnadas wanted to replace the auto-generated timestamp for exporting old logs to Clickhouse. nitya-signoz suggested a method for overriding the default timestamp.

<#C01HWQ1R0BC|support> Is it possible to replace the auto generated timestamp with another value before exporting to Clickhouse ? I am ingesting some old logs and could see that the timestamp on these logs in Signoz will be the time of ingesting the log. In the actual log line I have timestamp which would be of interest to anyone who is searching. Is it possible to customize the timegenerated filed ?
