How to verify stream status with the API

To verify a stream is running, you can fetch the stream status by sending a GET request to with the stream object id appended. You received the id in the response when you created a stream object.

Here is an example request:

curl -H 'authorization: Bearer {api_key}' \

This is an example response:


lastSeen represents when the stream was last observed by the monitoring system. The time is reported in Unix epoch time. If the stream is running, the epoch will be close to the current time.
