    I see these errors in Event browser
    Event timestamp outside valid boundaries - eventTimestamp
    and this is one of the examples of Event Content

    "eventName": "sceneLoaded",
    "userID": "80cba73d3b690ba56b8c896627429055",
    "sessionID": "2aa9bd01-edc7-420b-ad6f-00bda705858d",
    "eventUUID": "e88880c7-6f3d-45fe-8103-6e053d58d273",
    "eventTimestamp": "2022-10-13 13:15:35 +03:00",
    "eventParams": {
    "sceneName": "ShopMenuScreen"

    But these timestamp are auto set by unity itself and not by me. So why are they erroring out. There are lot of invalid events which makes funnel analysis slightly incorrect

    Hi Cryogee,
    Thanks for posting!

    The event shows a date time of October 13th 2022. At the time of writing this post that date is a future date. The user has set their device date and time to a future date. There are a few reasons for this either simply not aware of the wrong date time, attempting mischievous actions or other.

    The data will never be ingested since it falls into Invalid events and will simply be discarded.
    You can verify by running a this query in your sql data explorer.

    select EVENT_DATE, USER_ID from EVENTS
    where EVENT_NAME = 'sceneLoaded'
    and EVENT_JSON:sessionID::STRING = '80cba73d3b690ba56b8c896627429055'
    and EVENT_JSON:sessionID::STRING = '2aa9bd01-edc7-420b-ad6f-00bda705858d'
    order by USER_ID

    Hope this helps you out.

    All the best
