Usage

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

Knative Sink

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

telegram-sink-binding.yaml
apiVersion: camel.apache.org/v1alpha1
kind: KameletBinding
metadata:
  name: telegram-sink-binding
spec:
  source:
    ref:
      kind: InMemoryChannel
      apiVersion: messaging.knative.dev/v1
      name: mychannel
  sink:
    ref:
      kind: Kamelet
      apiVersion: camel.apache.org/v1alpha1
      name: telegram-sink
    properties:
      authorizationToken: "The Token"

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

Save the telegram-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 telegram-sink-binding.yaml

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 telegram-sink -p "sink.authorizationToken=The Token"

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

Kafka Sink

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

telegram-sink-binding.yaml
apiVersion: camel.apache.org/v1alpha1
kind: KameletBinding
metadata:
  name: telegram-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: telegram-sink
    properties:
      authorizationToken: "The Token"

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 telegram-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 telegram-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 telegram-sink -p "sink.authorizationToken=The Token"

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