Use RudderStack to Send Event Data to Apache Kafka

By integrating RudderStack with Apache Kafka, you can dump your event data from a variety of your data sources. The integration is quite simple too - all you need to do is specify the host name and topic name in the connection settings of the RudderStack dashboard. Once the destination is configured and enabled, all the events from your data sources will automatically start flowing to RudderStack, and can be routed to the specific Kafka topic in real-time.

By Adding Kafka Support for RudderStack, you can:

  • Send your event data across different customer touch-points to Apache Kafka securely
  • Dump your customer event data to the specified Kafka topic in real-time
  • Skip any manual configuration or installing additional code snippets to send your event data to Kafka
