About the Apacha Kafka integration connector

This is elastic.io’s own private connector to work with all other connectors in your integration workflows. It was developed specifically for the elastic.io platform, and it comes with the platform by default.

The Apache Kakfa integration connector, as the name suggests, supports both triggers and actions. Specifically, it can be triggered to ‘Consume’ (read) a message from Kafka or the action ‘Produce’ can be used to create a message or event.

To complement the Pub/Sub integration connector, we have the so called Topics as part of our integration platform. Follow the Documentation link above to find more about that and what you need to do to set everything up.

Due to the fact that it is under the proprietary license, you cannot change or extend this connector yourself. If you have any questions, you’re welcome to contact our pre-sales team at ps[at]elastic.io.


PLEASE NOTE: You need to have an account on the elastic.io integration platform in order to use the Pub/Sub integration connector. You can sign up for a free 14-day trial here.
