Getting an Endpoint to Connect to Apache Kafka Example

Getting an endpoint to connect to Apache Kafka


Background

You can use any of the available clients to interface with your cluster. In this example we will use a command line producer and consumer called Kafkacat.

Prerequisites

Get your endpoint

  • From the Eventador console, under deployments, click your Apache Kafka cluster.
  • Switch to the Connections tab.
  • Copy the value in Plain Text Endpoint.
  • Open your terminal and paste BROKERS=<value from plain text endpoint> this value should end in eventador.io:9092

    Note: make sure you have added the IP address of your machine or you will not be able to access your cluster (see “Add an ACL” in the getting started guide).
