Document Collection Stream

Each collection in Macrometa GDN can be a stream. Collection streams use the WebSocket protocol to emit event messages for operations performed on the collection.

The Stream tab is only displayed if streams are enabled on that collection.

For more information about streams, refer to Streams and Stream Workers.

View a collection stream

  1. Log in to your Macrometa account.
  2. Click Data > Collections.
  3. Click the collection for which you want to view the stream.
  4. Click Stream. If the Stream tab is not visible, then streams are not enabled on the collection.
