3.5 Kafka Connect Configs

Below is the configuration of the Kafka Connect framework.

The name of the Kafka topic where connector configurations are stored

Type:string
Default:
Valid Values:
Importance:high

A unique string that identifies the Connect cluster group this worker belongs to.

Type:string
Default:
Valid Values:
Importance:high

Converter class used to convert between Kafka Connect format and the serialized form that is written to Kafka. This controls the format of the keys in messages written to or read from Kafka, and since this is independent of connectors it allows any connector to work with any serialization format. Examples of common formats include JSON and Avro.

Type:class
Default:
Valid Values:
Importance:high

The name of the Kafka topic where connector offsets are stored

Type:string
Default:
Valid Values:
Importance:high

The name of the Kafka topic where connector and task status are stored

Type:string
Default:
Valid Values:
Importance:high

Converter class used to convert between Kafka Connect format and the serialized form that is written to Kafka. This controls the format of the values in messages written to or read from Kafka, and since this is independent of connectors it allows any connector to work with any serialization format. Examples of common formats include JSON and Avro.

Type:class
Default:
Valid Values:
Importance:high

A list of host/port pairs to use for establishing the initial connection to the Kafka cluster. The client will make use of all servers irrespective of which servers are specified here for bootstrapping—this list only impacts the initial hosts used to discover the full set of servers. This list should be in the form host1:port1,host2:port2,…. Since these servers are just used for the initial connection to discover the full cluster membership (which may change dynamically), this list need not contain the full set of servers (you may want more than one, though, in case a server is down).

Type:list
Default:localhost:9092
Valid Values:
Importance:high

The expected time between heartbeats to the group coordinator when using Kafka’s group management facilities. Heartbeats are used to ensure that the worker’s session stays active and to facilitate rebalancing when new members join or leave the group. The value must be set lower than session.timeout.ms, but typically should be set no higher than 1/3 of that value. It can be adjusted even lower to control the expected time for normal rebalances.

Type:int
Default:3000 (3 seconds)
Valid Values:
Importance:high

The maximum allowed time for each worker to join the group once a rebalance has begun. This is basically a limit on the amount of time needed for all tasks to flush any pending data and commit offsets. If the timeout is exceeded, then the worker will be removed from the group, which will cause offset commit failures.

Type:int
Default:60000 (1 minute)
Valid Values:
Importance:high

The timeout used to detect worker failures. The worker sends periodic heartbeats to indicate its liveness to the broker. If no heartbeats are received by the broker before the expiration of this session timeout, then the broker will remove the worker from the group and initiate a rebalance. Note that the value must be in the allowable range as configured in the broker configuration by group.min.session.timeout.ms and group.max.session.timeout.ms.

Type:int
Default:10000 (10 seconds)
Valid Values:
Importance:high

The password of the private key in the key store file. This is optional for client.

Type:password
Default:null
Valid Values:
Importance:high

The location of the key store file. This is optional for client and can be used for two-way authentication for client.

Type:string
Default:null
Valid Values:
Importance:high

The store password for the key store file. This is optional for client and only needed if ssl.keystore.location is configured. 

Type:password
Default:null
Valid Values:
Importance:high

The location of the trust store file. 

Type:string
Default:null
Valid Values:
Importance:high

The password for the trust store file. If a password is not set access to the truststore is still available, but integrity checking is disabled.

Type:password
Default:null
Valid Values:
Importance:high

Controls how the client uses DNS lookups. If set to use_all_dns_ips, connect to each returned IP address in sequence until a successful connection is established. After a disconnection, the next IP is used. Once all IPs have been used once, the client resolves the IP(s) from the hostname again (both the JVM and the OS cache DNS name lookups, however). If set to resolve_canonical_bootstrap_servers_only, resolve each bootstrap address into a list of canonical names. After the bootstrap phase, this behaves the same as use_all_dns_ips. If set to default (deprecated), attempt to connect to the first IP address returned by the lookup, even if the lookup returns multiple IP addresses.

Type:string
Default:use_all_dns_ips
Valid Values:[default, use_all_dns_ips, resolve_canonical_bootstrap_servers_only]
Importance:medium

Valid Values:[0,…]
Importance:medium

The list of protocols enabled for SSL connections. The default is ‘TLSv1.2,TLSv1.3’ when running with Java 11 or newer, ‘TLSv1.2’ otherwise. With the default value for Java 11, clients and servers will prefer TLSv1.3 if both support it and fallback to TLSv1.2 otherwise (assuming both support at least TLSv1.2). This default should be fine for most cases. Also see the config documentation for `ssl.protocol`.

Type:string
Default:JKS
Valid Values:
Importance:medium

The SSL protocol used to generate the SSLContext. The default is ‘TLSv1.3’ when running with Java 11 or newer, ‘TLSv1.2’ otherwise. This value should be fine for most use cases. Allowed values in recent JVMs are ‘TLSv1.2’ and ‘TLSv1.3’. ‘TLS’, ‘TLSv1.1’, ‘SSL’, ‘SSLv2’ and ‘SSLv3’ may be supported in older JVMs, but their usage is discouraged due to known security vulnerabilities. With the default value for this config and ‘ssl.enabled.protocols’, clients will downgrade to ‘TLSv1.2’ if the server does not support ‘TLSv1.3’. If this config is set to ‘TLSv1.2’, clients will not use ‘TLSv1.3’ even if it is one of the values in ssl.enabled.protocols and the server only supports ‘TLSv1.3’.

This controls the format of the keys in messages written to or read from Kafka, and since this is independent of connectors it allows any connector to work with any serialization format. Examples of common formats include JSON and Avro.

HeaderConverter class used to convert between Kafka Connect format and the serialized form that is written to Kafka. This controls the format of the header values in messages written to or read from Kafka, and since this is independent of connectors it allows any connector to work with any serialization format. Examples of common formats include JSON and Avro. By default, the SimpleHeaderConverter is used to serialize header values to strings and deserialize them by inferring the schemas.

The action that Connect should take on the connector when changes in external configuration providers result in a change in the connector’s configuration properties. A value of ‘none’ indicates that Connect will do nothing. A value of ‘restart’ indicates that Connect should restart/reload the connector with the updated configuration properties.The restart may actually be scheduled in the future if the external configuration provider indicates that a configuration value will expire in the future.

Type:string
Default:restart
Valid Values:[none, restart]

The maximum duration in milliseconds that a failed operation will be reattempted. The default is 0, which means no retries will be attempted. Use -1 for infinite retries.

Type:long
Default:0
Valid Values:
Importance:medium

The maximum duration in milliseconds between consecutive retry attempts. Jitter will be added to the delay once this limit is reached to prevent thundering herd issues.

Type:long
Default:60000 (1 minute)
Valid Values:
Importance:medium

Behavior for tolerating errors during connector operation. ‘none’ is the default value and signals that any error will result in an immediate connector task failure; ‘all’ changes the behavior to skip over problematic records.

Type:string
Default:none
Valid Values:[none, all]
Importance:medium

If true, write each error and the details of the failed operation and problematic record to the Connect application log. This is ‘false’ by default, so that only errors that are not tolerated are reported.

Type:boolean
Default:false
Valid Values:
Importance:medium

Whether to the include in the log the Connect record that resulted in a failure. This is ‘false’ by default, which will prevent record keys, values, and headers from being written to log files, although some information such as topic and partition number will still be logged.

Type:boolean
Default:false
Valid Values:
Importance:medium

The name of the topic to be used as the dead letter queue (DLQ) for messages that result in an error when processed by this sink connector, or its transformations or converters. The topic name is blank by default, which means that no messages are to be recorded in the DLQ.

Type:string
Default:“”
Valid Values:
Importance:medium

Replication factor used to create the dead letter queue topic when it doesn’t already exist.

Type:short
Default:3
Valid Values:
Importance:medium

If true, add headers containing error context to the messages written to the dead letter queue. To avoid clashing with headers from the original record, all error context header keys, all error context header keys will start with __connect.errors.

Type:boolean
Default:false
