first of all, i’m new to kafka in general.
I needed data from a company for a private project and a kafka topic was created where the data is sent. After watching countless videos in the meantime, I thought I could do the integration. My way to do this is as follows:
Kafka topic (ext. company) > Kafka connect (standalone on my side) > mysql sink
Now I was told to connect to the topic:
servicename.pem (incl. pkey)
servicename.jks (i think this is keystore)
server.cer.pem (i generated truststore.jks from this one)
username and password
First problem, if I have a keystore the authentication is actually pure SSL and I don’t need username and password and if it is SASL_SSL I don’t need a keystore. I am a bit confused and have tried all possible combinations. Of course I have also tried purely as a consumer because I think I’m still missing the schema-registry url. Or, before I ask the company and uncovered myself as a complete newbie, could someone here make the connection with the information given to me? Would this be possible at all? Thanks for the help.
