- 6.From the actions dropdown, select Manual Run.
- 7.Press the play button.
- 8.You will then get an options popup, enter any required additional settings in this box.
- 9.Press the pink Run Action button.

A HighCohesion stream allows for data streaming to occur, however the stream is simple the configuration for for the the data stream. Once activated, either manually or via a schedule, the stream will lead to the creation of the following (in order of hierarchy).
- Jobs - A stream will create a job. When a stream is executed, it will create a Job. A manual job is set to run as soon as possible (in line with system capacity at the time) and a scheduled job is set to run at the next defined interval.
- Events - A job creates between zero and many events. Events are created when the job finds relevant data in the source system. If no data is found, no events will be created.
- Entities - Events create or update entities. Entities relate to data that is contained within an event.
We recommend reading the information about Reporting that will give further insight in to how this data is used by HighCohesion or can be used by you to review what is happening when the stream is executed.
