Stream Files!


I created a new stream file and I also added it to the startup streams. However,

1.) When I restart the application, I need to go to “Stream Files” and press the “Connect to this stream” icon before the stream becomes available.

2.) I assume that when entire server application is restarted, the same is required.

Is it possible to somehow configure the server that if the startup fails (because there is no stream), the StreamFile will be connected to automatically when the first client makes the request?




When adding streams to Startup Streams they are automatically started when the server is restarted however they’re not started by restarting the application itself.

This is explained in the article How to start streams at server startup
