  • You don't need the generator, but using it is a best practice.
  • The image in the generator can be used, but it's recommended you should use your own image.
  • The content property is displayed literally this will change for the product release. See the data model description elsewhere in the documentation.
  • If you only see one event in the stream, only the last event is shown for any given object. If you change the object ID more events will be shown.
