Step 4: Activate your pipeline and preview the results

Let’s activate the pipeline that you just created. Like connections, newly created pipelines must be activated to start processing data.

  1. Navigate to the Pipelines page, and select the pipeline that you just created.

  2. Select Start to activate the pipeline. The Start Options menu opens. For this tutorial, you can ignore these settings and simply select Start.

  3. Wait until the status of the pipeline shows Running.

  4. Select the output stream called http_events.

  5. In the Overview page for the http_events stream, observe the sample of records that are in the stream. These are the records that are being processed by the pipeline that you created earlier.

    POST /users/1 HTTP/2.0


    Nov-02 15:57:04.75

    2023-11-02 20:57:04

    PATCH /products/2 HTTP/1.1


    Nov-02 15:57:04.25

    2023-11-02 20:57:04

    PUT /products/2 HTTP/1.1


Now that we’ve verified that the HTTP records are being processed and transformed as expected, we’ll now build a second pipeline.
