Connecting to TLS protected clusters

Menu

If your connectors require access to a client encryption enabled Instaclustr cluster you can use the Trusted Clusters view to configure the required truststore for connectivity. 

  1. To reach the Trusted Clusters view click on the Kafka Connect drop down in the kafka connect cluster details view and select the Trusted Cluster option.
  2. In the Trusted Clusters view select the cluster you wish to connect to and click on the Add button.
  3. To save the changes please click on the Save Changes button.
  4. When the truststore configuration is successfully completed you will see the Status reach running. With this the Kafka Connect node IPs will be also added to the trusted cluster firewall rules to allow connectivity.
    However if private IP usage is intended via vpc peering please remember to add the rules manually.

  5. To configure the custom connector please use the truststore path and the password exposed in the same view.
    As an example when configuring the cassandra connector add the following lines into its config
