Configuring CKafka Connector

Last updated: 2022-05-05 16:02:46


    You can configure a CKafka connector to consume content in CKafka message queues. A CKafka connector is implemented in the pull pattern. It automatically pulls CKafka content and routes events to relevant services through event rules. This document describes how to create a CKafka connector and the structure of events generated by the CKafka connector.


    You have created an event bus.


    1. Log in to the EventBridge console and select Event Bus on the left sidebar.
    2. In the Event Bus list, select the event bus for which you want to configure a CKafka connector.
    3. On the Event Bus Details page, click Add in the connector configuration section.
    4. Enter the relevant information as prompted as shown below:

      Here, select CMQ (Kafka) for Connector type and enter other configuration items as prompted.

      Currently, only delivery for Tencent Cloud CKafka instances is supported. Please confirm that no username and password have been configured for your CKafka instances; otherwise, the connector may fail to get messages.

    5. Click OK.
    6. Select Event Rule on the left sidebar.
    7. In the drop-down lists at the top of the Event Rule page, select the same connector information as that set during connector creation and click Create Event Rule as shown below:
    8. Enter the relevant information as prompted as shown below:

      Here, select Message Queue CKafka for Tencent Cloud service and configure the delivery target.
    9. Click OK.

    Structure of events generated by the CKafka connector

          "subject": "qcs::ckafka:ap-guangzhou:uin/1250000000:ckafkaId/uin/1250000000/ckafka-123456",     
               "msgBody":"Hello from Ckafka again!"      

    The parameters are described as follows:

    Parameter Description
    topic CKafka delivery topic.
    Partition Event source partition. One topic can contain one or more partitions. CKafka uses partition as an allocation unit.
    offset Consumer group, which specifies the consumption start point.
    msgKey CKafka message key.
