Looking for an easy way to test the streaming API


I’m currently looking into the best way to test the streaming API, using something like POST man etc.

I’ve ran some tests but cant find a way to pass in a company or add a company to a stream? I’ve managed to connect up but don’t get anything back on any time stamp?

Any help would be great thanks.

You cannot stream for a single company number, you take it all and ‘throw away’ what you do not require.
Once you have connected correctly with no parameters, you will get data, lots of it…

That sounds like what I was looking for just needed some clarity, Is there a way to pull in changes from a date like yesterday and stream these over, I saw a mention within the Dev documents about time points. Just need an example to test if so. I did try https://stream.companieshouse.gov.uk/companies?timepoint=1614321549 but this failed and returned: “416 Requested Range Not Satisfiable”. So i’m guessing the format is wrong or the date time stamp is capped?
