Edit a data stream

The DataStream control panel lets you edit almost every part of your data stream configurations. For example, you can update the contract that you created the data stream for, the name of your data stream, the properties that you want to monitor, the parameters it logs, and the destinations where it makes the logs available.

By editing a data stream, you create and publish a version that becomes the default version used by this data stream. Once you publish the edited version, you can't revert to any previous version. See Version management.

How to

  1. Log in to Control Center using a User ID and Password that have been configured for access to DataStream.
  2. Go to > COMMON SERVICES > DataStream.
  3. On the DataStream page, find the data stream that you want to edit and select Actions > Edit.
    Tip: Pay attention to the activation status of the data stream that you want to edit. When editing, DataStream creates and publishes a version with the same activation status as the edited version.
    The Edit stream wizard appears.
  4. In Configuration, you can do the following:
    1. Edit the Contract ID where you initially created the data stream.
    2. In Include properties, edit the properties that the data stream monitors.
      You can select up to 15 properties. All properties that are part of data streams that are changing their statuses, either being activated or deactivated, are grayed out, and you can't select them.
    3. Click Next to continue to the Data Sets tab.
  5. In Data sets, edit the parameters that the data stream collects.
  6. In Delivery, edit the destination where the data stream sends logs and the delivery conditions for you log files.
  7. In Summary, review your changes, decide whether to publish the edited data stream, and click Publish.
    It takes about 15 minutes to publish a data stream, After this time, your data stream is active on the production network.

Next steps

If you published an inactive version of a data stream, you may want to activate an entire data stream in the control panel or manage log collection for specific proprieties in Property Manager. See Activate or deactivate a stream in the DataStream application and Activate or deactivate log collection for a property.
