Confluent Managed Connect

Configuration

Generate an API key

You will need the Confluent CLI tools installed and configured to generate an API key for Connect.

  • Log in to your account:
    confluent login
  • Create an API key for the cloud resource:
    confluent api-key create --resource cloud

Environment ID + Cluster ID

Next, you will need to locate your Confluent Cloud Environment ID + Cluster ID.

You can discover this via the CLI using:

confluent environments list

Or you can log in to the Confluent Cloud dashboard, select your cluster and find the IDs in the URL bar:

Configure Kpow

With your API key generated, configure Kpow with the following environment variables:

CONNECT_REST_URL=https://api.confluent.cloud/connect/v1/environments/${ENVIRONMENT_ID}/clusters/${CLUSTER_ID}
CONNECT_AUTH=BASIC
CONNECT_BASIC_AUTH_USER=${API_KEY}
CONNECT_BASIC_AUTH_PASS=${API_SECRET}
