Marketo Source Connector Configuration Properties

To use this connector, specify the name of the connector class in the connector.class configuration property. Confluent recommends you initialize the configuration parameter tasks.max to use the same number of entities specified in the entity.names configuration property of the connector, treating all activities activity types as a single entity.

connector.class=io.confluent.connect.marketo.MarketoSourceConnector

Connector-specific configuration properties are described below.

Marketo

marketo.url

Marketo server hostname/URL to which the Kafka source connector connects.

  • Type: string
  • Valid Values: URI with one of these schemes: ‘http’, ‘https’
  • Importance: high
entity.names

The Marketo entities that are to be exported from Marketo and written to Kafka.

  • Type: list
  • Valid Values: one of [leads, programs, staticLists, campaigns, activities_<activityType>]. Here, activities can be listed as activities_add_to_nurture, activities_add_to_opportunity , etc.
  • Importance: high
marketo.since

ISO 8601 format of the starting time from whence the data should be exported to Kafka topics; only used during the first run of a connector. Any eventual restart of the connector would use the committed entity offset, if any. The datetime can include the offset but not the time zone (Refer to Marketo Field types for the datetime format.)

  • Type: string
  • Default: If the start datetime isn’t provided, then the current datetime when connector is started will be used as a default value. It will fetch the records updated and created from the time connector starts.
  • Valid Values: either blank, or timestamp in one of these formats: YYYY-MM-DD, YYYY-MM-DD'T'hh:mm:ss, YYYY-MM-DD'T'hh:mm:ssTZD` (where TZD is ``+hh:mm or -hh:mm).
  • Importance: medium

Topics

topic.name.pattern

The pattern to use for the topic name, where the ${entityName} literal will be replaced with each entity name. For example, a value such as marketo_topic_${entityName} with tables leads and campaigns would create two topics marketo_topic_leads and marketo_topic_campaigns, and ensure that table leads is exported to topic marketo_topic_leads, etc. Further, if the entity.names config contains any activities entities like activities_add_to_nurture, or activities_add_to_opportunity, then all such entities are grouped into a single topic marketo_topic_activities from the previous example. For all the activities entities, Kafka records will be directed to a single topic where ${entityName} is populated to activities.

confluent.topic.replication.factor The replication factor for the Kafka topic used for Confluent Platform configuration, including licensing information. This is used only if the topic does not already exist, and the default of 3 is appropriate for production use. If you are using a development environment with less than 3 brokers, you must set this to the number of brokers (often 1).

  • Type: int
  • Default: 3
  • Importance: low

Confluent license properties

Tip

While it is possible to include license-related properties in the connector configuration, starting with Confluent Platform version 6.0, you can now put license-related properties in the Connect worker configuration instead of in each connector configuration.

Note

This connector is proprietary and requires a license. The license information is stored in the _confluent-command topic. If the broker requires SSL for connections, you must include the security-related confluent.topic.* properties as described below.

confluent.license

Confluent issues enterprise license keys to each subscriber. The license key is text that you can copy and paste as the value for confluent.license. A trial license allows using the connector for a 30-day trial period. A developer license allows using the connector indefinitely for single-broker development environments.

If you are a subscriber, please contact Confluent Support for more information.

  • Type: string
  • Default: “”
  • Valid Values: Confluent Platform license
  • Importance: high
confluent.topic.ssl.truststore.location

The location of the trust store file.

  • Type: password
  • Default: null
  • Importance: high
confluent.topic.ssl.key.password

  • Type: string
  • Default: “PLAINTEXT”
  • Importance: medium

License topic configuration

A Confluent enterprise license is stored in the _confluent-command topic. This topic is created by default and contains the license that corresponds to the license key supplied through the confluent.license property.

Note

No public keys are stored in Kafka topics.

The following describes how the default _confluent-command topic is generated under different scenarios:

  • A 30-day trial license is automatically generated for the _confluent command topic if you do not add the confluent.license property or leave this property empty (for example, confluent.license=).
  • Adding a valid license key (for example, confluent.license=<valid-license-key>) adds a valid license in the _confluent-command topic.

Here is an example of the minimal properties for development and testing.

You can change the name of the _confluent-command topic using the confluent.topic property (for instance, if your environment has strict naming conventions). The example below shows this change and the configured Kafka bootstrap server.

confluent.topic=foo_confluent-command
confluent.topic.bootstrap.servers=localhost:9092

The example above shows the minimally required bootstrap server property that you can use for development and testing. For a production environment, you add the normal producer, consumer, and topic configuration properties to the connector properties, prefixed with confluent.topic..

License topic ACLs

The _confluent-command topic contains the license that corresponds to the license key supplied through the confluent.license property. It is created by default. Connectors that access this topic require the following ACLs configured:

  • CREATE and DESCRIBE on the resource cluster, if the connector needs to create the topic.
  • DESCRIBE, READ, and WRITE on the _confluent-command topic.

You can provide access either individually for each principal that will use the license or use a wildcard entry to allow all clients. The following examples show commands that you can use to configure ACLs for the resource cluster and _confluent-command topic.

  1. Set a CREATE and DESCRIBE ACL on the resource cluster:

    kafka-acls --bootstrap-server localhost:9092 --command-config adminclient-configs.conf \
    --add --allow-principal User:<principal> \
    --operation CREATE --operation DESCRIBE --cluster
    
  2. Set a DESCRIBE, READ, and WRITE ACL on the _confluent-command topic:

    kafka-acls --bootstrap-server localhost:9092 --command-config adminclient-configs.conf \
    --add --allow-principal User:<principal> \
    --operation DESCRIBE --operation READ --operation WRITE --topic _confluent-command
    

Overriding Default Configuration Properties

You can override the replication factor using confluent.topic.replication.factor. For example, when using a Kafka cluster as a destination with less than three brokers (for development and testing) you should set the confluent.topic.replication.factor property to 1.

You can override producer-specific properties by using the confluent.topic.producer. prefix and consumer-specific properties by using the confluent.topic.consumer. prefix.

You can use the defaults or customize the other properties as well. For example, the confluent.topic.client.id property defaults to the name of the connector with -licensing suffix. You can specify the configuration settings for brokers that require SSL or SASL for client connections using this prefix.

You cannot override the cleanup policy of a topic because the topic always has a single partition and is compacted. Also, do not specify serializers and deserializers using this prefix; they are ignored if added.
