Configuring Kerberos authentication for the Kafka Connect role

Learn how Kerberos authentication is configured for the Kafka Connect role.

Kafka Connect roles inherit the Kerberos configuration of the parent Kafka service. If you are deploying Kafka Connect roles under a Kafka service that already has Kerberos enabled, Cloudera Manager will automatically enable Kerberos for Kafka Connect as well. Other than making sure that the Kafka service’s Kerberos configuration is correctly set, no additional user action is required.
