The New Stream and Change Stream Commands
The New Stream and Change Stream commands open a Stream Configuration dialog in which you specify/revise the configuration of a new/existing stream.
Invoking the Command
In the StreamBrowser, right-click a stream to select it and display its context menu. Then,

- Choose Change Stream from the context menu to revise the configuration of the selected stream.
Using the New Stream / Change Stream Dialog

The parent stream of the stream you are reconfiguring. Changing this entry changes the parent stream when you click Ok.

The type of the stream:
Note: The Stream Type field is not editable in the Change Stream dialog. You cannot change the type of an existing stream.
By default, a stream inherits the versions currently in its parent stream. If you assign a basis time to a stream, it inherits the versions that were in the parent stream at a specified point in time. Basis time is not applicable to pass-through and gated streams.
You can fill in the individual subfields manually, or use the Select Date button () to display choices ("2 days ago", etc.) that fill in the subfields automatically. Once these subfields are filled in, you can revise them individually or by clicking the Select Date button again.
