Using non-Instaclustr Kafka ClustersMenu
In this article we’ll show how to set up an Instaclustr Kafka Connect cluster that targets a non-Instaclustr Kafka cluster via the Instaclustr console. For information on how to provision an Apache Kafka Cluster via the Instaclustr Provisioning API, see this page: Instaclustr Provisioning API
- Follow the steps in the creation guide for Kafka Connect clusters, except for the following differences when filling out the Kafka Connect Options section:
- Select the ‘Other Cluster’ option, and put in the connection related properties that you will need to insert into the Kafka Connect worker.properties file. Note that in this interface only bootstrap.servers and connection related options are allowed. Not every valid entry in worker.properties will be allowed here. Additionally, if you are using an SSL/TLS connection to your Kafka cluster, you will need to supply a base64 encoded version of a JKS trust store containing your Kafka server certificate.
