In the examples above, we connected a source to a sink using the pipe symbol
|. You can also pass properties to the source and sink configurations. The property names will depend on the individual app implementations, but as an example, the
http source app exposes a
server.port setting which allows you to change the data ingestion port from the default value. To create the stream using port 8000, we would use
dataflow:> stream create --definition "http --server.port=8000 | log" --name myhttpstream
The shell provides tab completion for application properties and also the shell command
app info provides some additional documentation.
