Managing a Stream’s Custom Attributes

If you are an Account owner, you can define multiple custom attributes for each stream.

Each custom attribute has a Name (such as Model) and a Value (such as Analog), and optionally also a Comment. Custom attributes and their values are shown in the right pane of the data stream, below the graph.
