kafka sink Kafka Sink

Provided by: "Apache Software Foundation"

Support Level for this Kamelet is: "Preview"

Send data to Kafka topics.

The Kamelet is able to understand the following headers to be set:

  • key / ce-key: as message key

  • partition-key / ce-partition-key: as message partition key

Both the headers are optional.

Usage

This section summarizes how the kafka-sink can be used in various contexts.

Knative Sink

The kafka-sink Kamelet can be used as Knative sink by binding it to a Knative object.

kafka-sink-binding.yaml
apiVersion: camel.apache.org/v1alpha1
kind: KameletBinding
metadata:
  name: kafka-sink-binding
spec:
  source:
    ref:
      kind: Channel
      apiVersion: messaging.knative.dev/v1
      name: mychannel
  sink:
    ref:
      kind: Kamelet
      apiVersion: camel.apache.org/v1alpha1
      name: kafka-sink
    properties:
      bootstrapServers: "The Brokers"
      password: "The Password"
      topic: "The Topic Names"
      user: "The Username"

Make sure you have Camel K installed into the Kubernetes cluster you’re connected to.

Save the kafka-sink-binding.yaml file into your hard drive, then configure it according to your needs.

You can run the sink using the following command:

kubectl apply -f kafka-sink-binding.yaml

Dependencies

The Kamelet needs the following dependencies:

  • camel:kafka

  • camel:kamelet

Binding to Knative using the Kamel CLI:

The procedure described above can be simplified into a single execution of the kamel bind command:

kamel bind channel:mychannel kafka-sink -p "sink.bootstrapServers=The Brokers" -p "sink.password=The Password" -p "sink.topic=The Topic Names" -p "sink.user=The Username"

This will create the KameletBinding under the hood and apply it to the current namespace in the cluster.

Kafka Sink

The kafka-sink Kamelet can be used as Kafka sink by binding it to a Kafka topic.

kafka-sink-binding.yaml
apiVersion: camel.apache.org/v1alpha1
kind: KameletBinding
metadata:
  name: kafka-sink-binding
spec:
  source:
    ref:
      kind: KafkaTopic
      apiVersion: kafka.strimzi.io/v1beta1
      name: my-topic
  sink:
    ref:
      kind: Kamelet
      apiVersion: camel.apache.org/v1alpha1
      name: kafka-sink
    properties:
      bootstrapServers: "The Brokers"
      password: "The Password"
      topic: "The Topic Names"
      user: "The Username"

Ensure that you’ve installed Strimzi and created a topic named my-topic in the current namespace. Make also sure you have Camel K installed into the Kubernetes cluster you’re connected to.

Save the kafka-sink-binding.yaml file into your hard drive, then configure it according to your needs.

You can run the sink using the following command:

kubectl apply -f kafka-sink-binding.yaml

Binding to Kafka using the Kamel CLI:

The procedure described above can be simplified into a single execution of the kamel bind command:

kamel bind kafka.strimzi.io/v1beta1:KafkaTopic:my-topic kafka-sink -p "sink.bootstrapServers=The Brokers" -p "sink.password=The Password" -p "sink.topic=The Topic Names" -p "sink.user=The Username"

This will create the KameletBinding under the hood and apply it to the current namespace in the cluster.
