Time interval between 1st & last Event in Related Event Group

On NOI-onprem, there is no way to specify or update or add the time interval between 1st and the last event within a Related Event Group through the UI.

Because in real world, the events within a Related Event Group may or may not always appear in the same time window each time(same second or same minute). And if the events from a Related Event Group do not appear within the pre-determined(by NOI) time interval then separate Group is created. This defeats the purpose of Related Event Grouping.

So there must be some flexibility to handle this. And NOI user should be allowed to update this from the UI.

The time interval can be specified for an Event Pattern or at Group Source Level but not at Group Level.

Probably there is a way to specify it from backend(using GROUPTTL column) but not through the UI. Also there are few disadvantages of doing it from backend.

It would be great to get this done through the UI.
