Kafka Connection Properties

Kafka Connection Properties

The Kafka connection is a messaging connection. Use the Kafka connection to access Kafka as a message target. You can create and manage a Kafka connection in the Developer tool or through infacmd.
The following table describes the general connection properties for the Kafka connection:
Property
Description
Name
The name of the connection. The name is not case sensitive and must be unique within the domain. You can change this property after you create the connection. The name cannot exceed 128 characters, contain spaces, or contain the following special characters:
~ ` ! $ % ^ & * ( ) - + = { [ } ] | \ : ; " ' < , > . ? /
ID
The string that the Data Integration Service uses to identify the connection. The ID is not case sensitive. It must be 255 characters or less and must be unique in the domain. You cannot change this property after you create the connection. Default value is the connection name.
Description
The description of the connection. Enter a string that you can use to identify the connection. The description cannot exceed 4,000 characters.
Location
The domain where you want to create the connection.
Type
The connection type.
The following table describes the Kafka broker properties for the Kafka connection:
Property
Description
Kafka Broker List
Comma-separated list of Kafka brokers which maintains the configuration of the Kafka messaging broker.
To specify a Kafka broker, use the following format:
<IP Address>:<port>
ZooKeeper Host Port List
Optional. Comma-separated list of Apache ZooKeeper which maintains the configuration of the Kafka messaging broker.
To specify the ZooKeeper, use the following format:
<IP Address>:<port>
Retry Timeout
Number of seconds the Integration Service attempts to reconnect to the Kafka broker to write data. If the source or target is not available for the time you specify, the mapping execution stops to avoid any data loss.
Kafka Broker Version
Configure the Kafka messaging broker version to 0.10.1.x-2.0.0.
