Stream Types allow us to categorize each Stream within a Release Pipeline.
For example, we have multiple projects running in parallel, e.g. a BPM Project, an API Project, and an Integration Project. Each of these projects would have a separate Release Pipeline.
Each project may contain a stream deploying services to an Oracle Service Bus domain (plus other streams which are project specific).
We can assign the stream type
OSB to each OSB Stream, allowing us to categorize streams across release pipelines.
Note: It is intended that reporting capabilities to be delivered in future versions of MyST will provide reporting by Stream Type, for example, allowing production of a report that shows all active releases for a particular stream type, such as OSB in the above example.
