I tried to learn about Confluent Kafka and CDC Source Connector. I followed the instruction on the confluent site on how to install Kafka CDC source Connector. After I followed everything, I can’t locate the CDC source connector via Rest API. Is there anything that I can try to properly install CDC source connector? Any tips will be appreciated.
could elaborate a bit more?
how did you configure the connect cluster and the connector?
Hi Thank you for your interest in helping out.
I installed Confluent Kafka on my mac.
- I started Confluent Kafka.
- I installed connector via the following command.
%confluent-hub install debezium/debezium-connector-postgresql:2.2.1
- I restated Confluent connect as instructed below.
%confluent local services connect start
- I check Control Center. Postgresql Connector is not available.
I checked plugin path and all that. But I have no clue as to how to bring this connector up.
How do your steps compare to the following? This assumes a fresh Confluent Platform 7.5.1 install at
export CONFLUENT_HOME=/opt/confluent-7.5.1/ export PATH=$CONFLUENT_HOME/bin:$PATH confluent-hub install debezium/debezium-connector-postgresql:latest confluent local services start
For the plugin install, I accepted the defaults to install it in
/opt/confluent-7.5.1/share/confluent-hub-components. After starting CP, you’ll see a message like:
Using CONFLUENT_CURRENT: /var/folders/lr/l80_d9f12lx138t8tpwvtv080000gq/T/confluent.845758
Verify that the
connect/connect.properties file under that directory contains the line:
With these steps I see the connector in Control Center:
