Creating a Stream Folder

Stream

Stream folders are designed to help you organise your streams. Another use for stream folders is that file and stream permissions can be set from which all child streams can inherit, as described in Chapter 9, File Permissions. When creating the repository the 'Development' and 'Release' stream folders are created by default as described in the section called “Creating a Repository”.

To create a stream folder right click on the parent stream folder and select 'Create new stream folder' from the menu.
