Kafka

The Kafka integration publishes events to a Kafka topic, using a configurable event key. Kafka uses the key for distributing messages over partitions. You can use this to ensure some subset of messages end up in the same partition, so they can be consumed in-order. And Kafka can use the key for data retention decisions. A header "event" with the event type is included in each message. There is no need to parse it from the key.

Events

The GCP Pub/Sub integration exposes all events as documented by Event types.

Configuration examples

Azure Event Hub

Azure Event Hub provides a Kafka endpoint which can be used to ingest data into the Event Hub using the Kafka protocol.

You can configure the Kafka integration with an Azure Event Hub using the following configuration example:

[application_server.integration.kafka]

# Fill in the name of your Event Hubs Namespace
brokers=["<EVENT HUBS NAMESPACE>.servicebus.windows.net:9093"]

# Fill in the name of your Event Hub
topic="<EVENT HUB>"

# TLS must be set to true
tls=true

# Leave this as-is
username="$ConnectionString"

# SAS Policy connection-string for the Event Hub
password="Endpoint=sb://.."
