Configure TLS/SSL Encryption for the Kafka Connect Role

Learn how to configure TLS/SSL encryption for the Kafka Connect role.

Kafka Connect roles inherit the TLS/SSL configuration of the parent Kafka service. If you are deploying Kafka Connect roles under a Kafka service that already has TLS/SSL enabled, Cloudera Manager will automatically enable TLS/SSL for Connect as well. If required however, you can manually enable or disable TLS/SSL.

  1. In Cloudera Manager, select the Kafka service.
  2. Go to Configuration.
  3. Find and configure the Enable TLS/SSL for Kafka Connect property.
  4. Click Save Changes
  5. Restart the service.
TLS/SSL Encryption is configured for the Kafka Connect role.
