Add timestamp on application/+/device/+/rx message

I have one suggestion: I think it would be helpful to add timestamp on the MQTT message for topic “application/{organizationID}/device/{devEUI}/rx”. Right now there is no timestamp which makes it difficult to dump the data to database.

You can add some field if you use the custom javascript decoder. It won’t be your raw message, but you can add a timestamp.

Please note that when your gateway has an accurate time-source (GPS), there will be a timestamp :slight_smile:

Thanks, Clement and brocaar.

NTP doesn’t work ? I have set up my multitech conduit AP with NTP servers but I have no timestamp.

I believe the (Semtech) packet-forwarder only sets the timestamp when it has a GPS (and of course a GPS fix).
