Unsupported Streams Messaging features

Some Streams Messaging features exist within this release of Cloudera Data Flow for Data Hub components, but are not supported by Cloudera.

The following Kafka features are not ready for production deployment. Cloudera encourages you to explore these features in non-production environments and provide feedback on your experiences through the Cloudera Community Forums.

  • Only Java based clients are supported. Clients developed with C, C++, Python, .NET and other languages are currently not supported.
  • Kafka Connect is not supported. NiFi and Sqoop are proven solutions for batch and real time data loading that complement Kafka's message broker capability. For more information, see Creating your First Flow Management cluster.
  • The Kafka default authorizer is not supported. This includes setting ACLs and all related APIs, broker functionality, and command-line tools.
