How to view stream metadata

Overview

You can add arbitrary string metadata to any stream. This metadata can be viewed via the Quix Portal.

Before you begin

  1. You should have at least one stream with metadata. The example project from our Quick Start to streaming data has metadata.

Steps

  1. Go to the platform home.

  2. Choose a workspace, and click the data button data button small inside its panel.

  3. Click the arrow icon in the second column of the main table to expand a stream. If that stream has metadata, you’ll see it displayed in a table headed “Metadata”, otherwise you’ll see the message “No Metadata”.
