Using Properties & Spaces in Data Streams

What is a property, what is a space and how to use them.

What are properties and spaces

Each Cognetik user is part of a company. When a user signs up, a company is automatically assigned to each account, unless the user account was created based on an invitation to join a company.

To better organize streams, a company can have:

  • Multiple properties (containers) where spaces live.
  • Multiple spaces where streams live.

To access the 'Management' page, in the upper right corner, click the 'App Settings' button from the drop down list under your username.

By default, each account has a property (My Property/Default Property) and a space (My Space/Default space which is a child of the previously mentioned property).

All existing streams can be found in the Default Space/My Space.

Accessing the stream list

To access the stream list, click the 'Stream List' button from the drop down list under your username, in the right upper corner, or click the 'My Space/Default Space' button in the 'Management' section of the App Settings page.

NOTE

Keep in mind that all streams created in a space or credentials linked within a space can only be accessed from that specific space.

Credentials can only be used in the space they were linked and removing a credential will unlink it from that specific space. If a credential is linked in multiple spaces, in order to remove it from your Cognetik account, you need to unlink it in all the spaces it was linked in. Use the space selector to navigate through your properties and spaces to link or unlink credentials.

Changing spaces and properties

To change the space or property from the stream list view, use the selector from the upper right corner.

Clicking a space takes you to the stream builder page within that space.
