Creating Kafka tables in SSB

You can query your streaming data using Kafka tables in SQL Stream Builder (SSB). You have the option to use the Kafka service in your environment, or connect to an external Kafka service. When creating Kafka tables you can use the Console wizard, the predefined templates or you can directly add a custom CREATE TABLE statement with the required properties in the SQL window.

  • You have prepared your environment based on the checklist in the Prepare your environment section.
  • You have set Ranger policies for Flink and SSB.
  • You have created a Streams Messaging cluster in your environment.
  • You have created a Kafka topic from which you can read messages from in SSB.
