kafka_connect => boolean

Enable kafka_connect None

kafka_rest => boolean

Enable kafka_rest None

schema_registry => boolean

kafka => object

Kafka broker configuration values

compression_type => string

compression.type Specify the final compression type for a given topic. This configuration accepts the standard compression codecs (‘gzip’, ‘snappy’, ‘lz4’, ‘zstd’). It additionally accepts ‘uncompressed’ which is equivalent to no compression; and ‘producer’ which means retain the original compression codec set by the producer.

group_initial_rebalance_delay_ms => integer

group.initial.rebalance.delay.ms The amount of time, in milliseconds, the group coordinator will wait for more consumers to join a new group before performing the first rebalance. A longer delay means potentially fewer rebalances, but increases the time until processing begins. The default value for this is 3 seconds. During development and testing it might be desirable to set this to 0 in order to not delay test execution time.

Please note that changing this configuration in an existing Schema Registry / Karapace setup leads to previous schemas being inaccessible, data encoded with them potentially unreadable and schema ID sequence put out of order. It’s only possible to do the switch while Schema Registry / Karapace is disabled. Defaults to _schemas.

leader_eligibility => boolean

leader_eligibility If true, Karapace / Schema Registry on the service nodes can participate in leader election. It might be needed to disable this when the schemas topic is replicated to a secondary cluster and Karapace / Schema Registry there must not participate in leader election. Defaults to true.
