Manipulate @timestamp with backfill

Is it possible to manipulate the @timestamp value for data going into elasticsearch? I have a program that did not run on a specific day and push data into elasticsearch and I wanted to backfill, but all that data would show in the current days view on a timeline histogram.

If the @timestamp value could be manipulated for a specific set of data to be resent it would back fill that missing days data/ counts in the same index. Is there perhaps a filter I could use that sets the timestamp value for the data in the logstash conf.

any ideas appreciated.

You can index any values in you want in Elasticsearch. You just need to populate your documents with the values you require.

Are you saying that if I include the @timestamp value in my document, it will get indexed and displayed in the timeline histogram count as that specific date & time.
