Enable Karapace schema registry authorization#


Most Aiven for Apache Kafka® services will have schema registry authorization enabled automatically, but older services may pre-date this feature. For older services, follow these steps to enable the functionality.

Replace the SERVICE_NAME placeholder with the name of the Aiven for Apache Kafka® service that should have schema registry authorization enabled:

avn service update --enable-schema-registry-authorization SERVICE_NAME

Karapace schema registry authorization can similarly be disabled (on older services only) using:

avn service update --disable-schema-registry-authorization SERVICE_NAME


Enabling Karapace schema registry authorization can disrupt access for users if the access control rules haven’t been configured to allow this.

Read the article about managing access control to configure the appropriate access for your users.
