Supported Self-Managed Connectors

Confluent supports the following self-managed connectors which import and export data from some of the most commonly used data systems.

You can download any Confluent Confluent Platform connector from Confluent Hub. After installing a connector, you can get started by either:

  • Creating a connector configuration and starting a standalone Kafka Connect process.
  • Making a REST request to a Kafka Connect cluster.
