We want to be able to temporarily disable collectors. We see that the sources have a parameter called cutoffTimestamp that we could set to be in the future, which would make it stop collecting for a while. It seems to work as expected, except for one thing. The only way I can get the collector to pickup the new value for cutoffTimestamp is to modify some other attribute. At first we did not have cutoffTimestamp set, so it was equal to 0. Then I changed it to 1527260653000. I did a GET request and the source still had 0. Then I changed the "pathExpression". It immediately picked up both the changes to "pathExpression" and "cutoffTimestamp". The same thing happened if I changed the description. It like updating that field on it's own is not enough to trigger an update to the source.
Am I doing something wrong or is that the expected behavior?
Here are some version details:
