I’ve deployed Kafka on Kubernetes on GCP, referring the below link :
I’ve created Ingress port, and am able to access the Control Center on the kafka-ingress port.
However, when i try to access the kafka broker using external endpoint(kafka-bootstrap-lb) it gives the following error :
188.8.131.52:9092/bootstrap: Disconnected: verify that security.protocol is correctly configured, broker might require SASL authentication (after 380ms in state UP)
Do I need to access the broker using SASL ? Any input on this would be appreciated!
