Kafka auditing using Atlas

An Atlas hook is now available in Kafka. Once it is set up and configured, the hook provides Atlas with a continuous feed of information about the Kafka service and its metadata. This enables you to manage, govern, and monitor Kafka metadata in Atlas.

For instructions on how to set up and configure the Atlas hook, see Configuring the Atlas hook in Kafka. For more information on how the hook works and how Kafka metadata is collected, see Kafka metadata collection .
