what would be the parameters if you want to provision from a specific point in time instead of the Latest Snapshot?

HI Meagan,

The procedure would generally be the same. However, step 3 would be slightly different in order to specify a time rather than a snapshot.

3. Set the time flow point source timeflow and location
    delphix database provision defaults *> set type=TimeflowPointEngineTime
    delphix database provision defaults *> set container=dexample 
    delphix database provision defaults *> set timestamp=2016-01-01T01:01:01.000Z

The timestamp should be in ISO 8601 extended format: "[yyyy]-[MM]-[dd]T[HH]:[mm]:[ss].[SSS]Z".

I hope that helps. If you have any questions, please feel free to let us know.

Thanks!
