Message: Simple JSON message (no schema).
I worked through the tutorial " Kafka Connect in Action: JDBC Sink" on YouTube with success; however, in my particular use case, I do not have write permission to the broker in order to create a new topic (i.e. Avro stream). I am only allowed to consume the data as it is (simple JSON message/no schema).
Is there a Connect alternative that allows me to create a schema (as in the tutorial using KSQLDB) and append it to the message WITHOUT creating a new topic on the broker?
