Managing Streams

This topic describes how to work with streams and stream pools.

Required IAM Policy

To use Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, you must be given the required type of access in a policy  written by an administrator, whether you're using the Console or the REST API with an SDK, CLI, or other tool. If you try to perform an action and get a message that you don’t have permission or are unauthorized, confirm with your administrator the type of access you've been granted and which compartment  you should work in.

For administrators: The policy in Let streaming users manage streams lets the specified group do everything with streaming and related Streaming service resources.

To set up and use a stream archiver, you must have read access to the stream and write access to the Object Storage. For example:

allow service stream-processing to use stream-pull in tenancy
allow service stream-processing to manage objects in tenancy

If you're new to policies, see Getting Started with Policies and Common Policies. If you want to dig deeper into writing policies for the Streaming service, see Details for the Streaming Service in the IAM policy reference.

Using the Console

To create a stream
To delete a stream
To produce a test message
To show recent messages on a stream
To move a stream to a different compartment

Using the API

For information about using the API and signing requests, see REST APIs and Security Credentials. For information about SDKs, see Software Development Kits and Command Line Interface.

Use these API operations to manage streams:
