Issues Connecting to Schema Registry in DataHub Kafka Topic

Original Slack Thread

I trying to connect to the Kafka topic in DataHub but i am having issues connecting to the schema registry.
I am running v0.13.0 on EKS.
I want to consume the Kafka topic with Apache NiFi, i managed to connect to kafka and fetch msgs, but i am not able to deserialize them.
How can i use the GMS internal schema reg for to deserialize the msgs ?
And no the action module does not serve for my use case.

Additionally, could you provide more details about the issues you’re facing with connecting to the schema registry? For example, any specific error messages or logs would be helpful.

Based on the information you provided so far, here are some general steps and considerations for connecting to a Kafka topic and schema registry in DataHub:

General Steps for Kafka Ingestion

  1. Kafka Configuration:

  2. Schema Registry Configuration:

  3. EKS Specific Configuration:

Example Configuration

Here is an example configuration for connecting to a Kafka topic and schema registry:

  type: "kafka"
      bootstrap: "your-kafka-bootstrap-server:9092"
        security.protocol: "SASL_SSL"
        sasl.mechanism: "PLAIN"
        sasl.username: "${CLUSTER_API_KEY_ID}"
        sasl.password: "${CLUSTER_API_KEY_SECRET}"
      schema_registry_url: "https://your-schema-registry-url"
      schema_registry_config: "${REGISTRY_API_KEY_ID}:${REGISTRY_API_KEY_SECRET}"

If you are using a custom schema registry, you might need to implement the KafkaSchemaRegistryBase class as shown in the|documentation.

Would you like more detailed steps or have specific questions about any part of the setup?


i want to connect to the internal gms schema registry from apache nifi

When configured to run with the internal schema registry, this is hosted on GMS at this URL http://&lt;GMS Hostname&gt;:8080/schema-registry/api⁣ make sure that your apache nifi can reach this port and host.
