Json schema registry

Hello pretty new to confluent. But I do have a elasticsearch connector set up that works great. I am looking to create my own schema for this json that is being pushed to kafka.

My first question is can my dev set a schema before they push the data to kafka?

If this is not an option is there a good guide to set up a schema or mappings?

Hi Rob,

You may have already figured this out, but yes, you can set a schema before sending data to Kafka. Using the Confluent Schema Registry you can create schemas in JSON Schema, Avro, or Protobuf.
