Configuring Kafka for use by EFM

To integrate Edge Flow Manager (EFM) with Apache Kafka, you need to create Kafka topics that receive the heartbeats and acknowledgements from MiNiFi agents.

You are using Apache Kafka 2.5 or above version.

  1. Create a Kafka topic for receiving heartbeats.
    For example, you create a Kafka topic called heartbeat.
  2. Create a Kafka topic for receiving acknowledgements.
    For example, you create a Kafka topic called ack.
  3. Optional. If you want to enable two-way TLS, configure specific Kafka server properties accordingly.
