Working with streams
Once you have connected source, process, and terminal nodes on the stream canvas, you have created a stream. As a collection of nodes, streams can be saved, annotated, and added to projects. You can also set numerous options for streams, such as optimization, date and time settings, parameters, and scripts. These properties are discussed in the topics that follow.
In IBM® SPSS® Modeler, you can use and modify more than one data stream in the same IBM SPSS Modeler session. The right side of the main window contains the managers pane, which helps you to navigate the streams, outputs, and models that are currently open. If you cannot see the managers pane, click Managers on the View menu, then click the Streams tab.
From this tab, you can:
- Access streams.
- Save streams.
- Save streams to the current project.
- Close streams.
- Open new streams.
- Store and retrieve streams from an IBM SPSS Collaboration and Deployment Services repository (if available at your site). See the topic About the IBM SPSS Collaboration and Deployment Services Repository for more information.
Right-click a stream on the Streams tab to access these options.
