Streams Configurations

This topic provides configuration parameters available for Confluent Platform. The Kafka Streams parameters are organized by order of importance, ranked from high to low.

  • application.id

    An identifier for the stream processing application. Must be unique within the Kafka cluster. It is used as 1) the default client-id prefix, 2) the group-id for membership management, 3) the changelog topic prefix.

    Type:string
    Default:
    Valid Values:
    Importance:high
  • bootstrap.servers

    A list of host/port pairs to use for establishing the initial connection to the Kafka cluster. The client will make use of all servers irrespective of which servers are specified here for bootstrapping—this list only impacts the initial hosts used to discover the full set of servers. This list should be in the form host1:port1,host2:port2,.... Since these servers are just used for the initial connection to discover the full cluster membership (which may change dynamically), this list need not contain the full set of servers (you may want more than one, though, in case a server is down).
