You can use Kafka Connectors to copy data between Kafka and other systems that you want to pull data from or push data to. Source Connectors import data from another system. Sink Connectors export data.
Confluent Platform offers supported and preview connectors.
- Supported Connectors
- These connectors are supported by Confluent. This set of common connectors are tested with Confluent Platform. These connectors import and export data from some of the most commonly used data systems. Using any these connectors is as easy as writing a simple connector configuration and starting a standalone Kafka Connect process or making a REST request to a Kafka Connect cluster.
- Preview Connectors
- The preview connectors are not currently supported and are instead provided as a preview covered by the Confluent Software Evaluation License. There are additional installation steps required for using the preview connectors. For more information, see the preview connectors documentation.
