Upgrading a Connector PluginΒΆ

Upgrading a connector is similar to upgrading any other Kafka client application. You should refer to the documentation for individual connector plugins if you have a need for rolling upgrades. The instructions below cover the procedure to upgrade any generic connector plugin by taking a short outage.

  1. Download the new connector plugin.
  2. Stop all Connect workers.
  3. Remove the old connector plugin from the plugin path or classpath.
  4. Install the new connector plugin per the instructions.
  5. Start up the workers.
  6. Start up the connector (if using distributed mode).
