As a developer, you will need to register the app you are analyzing, obtain an access token, and develop and run the client visualization.
The general process for developing for Streams is:
- Register the app you are developing for using Streams data.
- Obtain an access token using the Streams libraries.
- Develop and run the client visualization.
- Account Settings
You can control the level of access to Streams for people and client applications through account settings. If your user account has the Admin role, Account Settings appears at the top of the page.
- Registering the App
You register the app to obtain the client ID and client secret, and then use these to generate an access token.
- Querying the Stream
The Streams API (SAPI) returns and receives all data in JSON format, making integration with other applications easy.
