Kafka Connect InfluxDB Connector

The InfluxDB Connector is used to send data from Kafka to a downstream InfluxDB Server.

Install the InfluxDB Connector

You can install this connector by using the Confluent Hub client (recommended) or you can manually download the ZIP file.

Confluent Hub

Navigate to your Confluent Platform installation directory and run this command to install the latest (latest) connector version. The connector must be installed on every machine where Connect will be run.

confluent-hub install confluentinc/kafka-connect-influxdb:latest

You can install a specific version by replacing latest with a version number. For example:

confluent-hub install confluentinc/kafka-connect-influxdb:1.0.0-preview


Download the ZIP file and extract it into a directory that is listed on the plugin path of the Connect worker configuration properties (e.g. plugin.path=/usr/local/share/kafka/plugins). This must be done on each of the installations where Connect will be run. For more information, see Installing Plugins.
