Selecting Input

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

If you are using StreamLab, panels will open automatically with data from StreamLab. You will only need to follow the steps below if you wish to select a different input source.

In other cases, you select an input source: a stream, table, or view from the instance of s-Server that is connected to s-Dashboard.

The first time you do a Select Input, there may be a delay while s-Dashboard retrieves the catalog for s-Server. s-Server's catalog lists all schemas, streams, tables, and views.

If something changes in your s-Server (for example, a new stream is added), you will need to use the Invalidate the Cache command to refresh the catalog.

To select input:

1.Click the Select Input icon or select Select Input from the s-Dashboard menu..

The Select Input dialog box opens. Depending on the complexity of s-Server's catalog, you may need to wait for as much as a minute while s-Dashboard retrieves the catalog from s-Server.

2.Click a stream, table, or view and click Select. The dialog box closes, and the name of the input source appears in place of the Select Input icon.

3.Click Select.

The Select Input dialog box closes and the name of the stream, table, or view appears in the Title Bar.
