Getting started

Aiven services are managed in the Aiven web console . When you first log into the console with your email address and password, you will see the Services view, which shows you all the services in the currently selected project.

Warning

Aiven for Apache Kafka Connect services can be created only on top of existing Aiven for Apache Kafka running services. If your project doesn’t contain any Aiven for Apache Kafka services, create one before attempting to create an Aiven for Apache Kafka Connect service.
