can you explain a bit, what you are after and where you need this timestamp? Is there a chance you can inject it externally from your application via script parameters?

Hey , thanks for helping here's what i want to do in painless on my ELK

long datenow = new Date().getTime();
String domain ;
long previousdate = datenow - 860000 ;
for (from date now to previousdate) #thats the idea
{
domain += doc['usrName.keyword'];
}
return domain; #return all the domains

the goal its to inject it via script parameter (on a vizualise)
