After you've created a schema and its associated dataset, you may now configure datastreams (also referred to as Edge configurations or Edge Network configurations).
To create a datastream, your organization must be provisioned for this feature in Adobe Experience Platform Data Collection UI. Please contact your Adobe Customer Success Manager (CSM) to be added to the allow list.
The Datastreams tool is available to customers on the allow list regardless whether they use Experience Platform Data Collection UI for web tag management or to manage mobile app configuration.
Users will require Develop permissions for Experience Platform Data Collection. See the user permissions article for more details.

What is a datastream?

A datastream is a configured instance of the Edge Network that contains settings for your Adobe solutions and services. This configuration ensures that incoming data to the Edge Network is routed to Adobe Experience Platform and Adobe Experience Cloud solutions & services appropriately.
The following steps illustrate how to create a sample datastream for a mobile implementation:
  1. 1.
    In the browser, navigate to Adobe Experience Platform Data Collection UI and login with your credentials.
  2. 2.
    If your organization is enabled for multiple sandboxes, first select the sandbox from the top right corner. For more details about sandboxes, please read the sandboxes overview.
  3. 3.
    From the left panel, select Datastreams.
  4. 4.
    Select New Datastream (located on top right).
  5. 5.
    Set a name for the datastream and select Save.

Configuring your datastream with Adobe Experience Platform
Your datastream is ready to be used now. If different settings are required per environment, create new datastreams with the respective configuration settings.
