About the Kafka to Elastic connector

License Apache 2.0

This Elastic Sink allows you to write data from Kafka to Elastic. The connector converts the value from the Kafka Connect SinkRecords to JSON and uses Elastic’s JSON insert functionality to index a document.

The Sink creates an Index and Type corresponding to the topic name and uses the JSON insert functionality from Elastic’s client. This is an open-source project and so isn't available with Lenses support SLAs.
