Kafka Connect To Elasticsearch

Robin Moffatt shows how to take data from Kafka Connect and feed it into Elasticsearch:

Whilst Kafka Connect is part of Apache Kafka itself, if you want to stream data from Kafka to Elasticsearch you’ll want the Confluent Open Source distribution (or at least, the Elasticsearch connector).

The configuration is pretty simple. As before, see inline comments for details

It’s worth noting that if you’re using the same convertor throughout your pipelines (Avro, in this case) you’d actually put this in the Connect worker config itself rather than repeating it for each connector configuration.

This is a simple example which shows just how easy it can be.
