Use Case:
To achieve Stream name Uniqueness across Server.
Currently by developing Server Side plugin , it is possible only to achieve Stream Name Uniqueness in that Process area.
Would be interested to know how to make it across Server.
Example: Component Name Uniqueness - There is a jazz Server setting to achieve this.

How to develop similar kind of settings for Stream.?

Any hints, links, code snippets etc would be very helpful.

The only way I can think of is a naming pattern and make sure that there is a unique part for the project area that owns the stream. See https://rsjazz.wordpress.com/2017/02/13/diy-stream-naming-convention-advisors/ .

Please note that all components, streams etc have a unique ID that would allow to tell them apart. The unique name is just to help the humans in the team with context, so a project area wide solution would potentially be enough. 

Alternatively you would need a server extension or something that creates you some other name element to make the names unique. Note, the distinguishing item must be usable for humans too.

Is it possible to create setting which is done for Component Name Uniqueness, in the same line for Stream (Technically possible) across server?

This would have to be done in the product as far as I can tell. So an enhancement request would be needed.
