Manage Application Resources in Confluent Cloud using Confluent for Kubernetes¶
Using declarative Kubernetes-native API that Confluent for Kubernetes (CFK) provides, you can create and manage data plane application resources in Confluent Cloud.
The prerequisites are:
- You must deploy CFK. You don’t need to deploy Confluent Platform.
- Create Confluent Cloud access credentials in the form of an API key as described in Confluent Cloud Setup.
The resources you can currently manage on Confluent Cloud with CFK are the following. The list will grow in future releases.
For sample scenarios of creating and managing topics in Confluent Cloud, see Create topic on Confluent Cloud.
