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.

Install Connector Using Confluent Hub

Prerequisite
Confluent Hub Client must be installed. This is installed by default with Confluent Enterprise.

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

Install Connector Manually

Download and extract the ZIP file for your connector and then follow the manual connector installation instructions.
