This connector connects via HTTP to your instance of the Venafi Trust Protection
Platform ( which shall be referred to as TPP from here on) and pulls your Log events
into Kafka, allowing you to do any filtering/transforming/processing you'd like to do
within a comfortable Kafka environment.
N.B. Currently the connector starts from the beginning of time (i.e.
processes all past
events first), a future release will allow the option of starting from now (i.e.
skipping all previous events).
Use the Confluent Hub client to install this connector with:
confluent-hub install opencredo/kafka-connect-venafi-tpp:0.9.3
Or download the ZIP file and extract it into one of the directories that is listed on the Connect worker's plugin.path configuration properties. This must be done on each of the installations where Connect will be run. See here for more detailed instructions.
Once installed, you can then create a connector configuration file with the connector's settings, and deploy that to a Connect worker. See here for more detailed instructions.
The source code is located in this repository.
For more information, see the documentation.
