Kafka Monitor Integration Connector

Connector details

Overview

The kafka monitor integration connector monitors an Apache Kafka server and creates a KafkaTopic asset for each topic that is known to the server. If the topic is removed from the Apache Kafka Server, its corresponding KafkaTopic asset is also removed.
