- A running Kafka cluster
- A running Kafka Connect distributed service
- A running MigratoryData cluster
To install the MigratoryData Source Connector for Kafka, download the Kafka connector from the MigratoryData Connectors section of the downloads page.
Unzip the Kafka connector archive and place the
migratorydata-connector-kafka-<VERSION>.jarof the archive to a folder
<CONNECTOR_PATH>accessible by your Kafka Connect distributed service.
Edit the configuration file
config/connect-distributed.propertiesof your Kafka Connect distributed service and configure the parameter
plugin.pathto include the folder
<CONNECTOR_PATH>where you placed the
JARfile in the previous step.
