Kafka Connector 3.0

Kafka Connector 3.0

The Kafka connector provides functionality to stream, filter, and transform events from Couchbase Server to Kafka.

The Couchbase source connector allows you to import data from Couchbase Server into Kafka topics.

Data is loaded efficiently and reliably using Couchbase's internal replication protocol, DCP. Every change to or deletion of the document generates a replication event, which is then sent to the configured Kafka topic. When copying data from a bucket, the connector loads only new or modified documents.

Compatibility

Because the Kafka connector relies heavily on DCP, it is only compatible with Couchbase Server 3.0 and later.

Contributing

Couchbase welcomes community contributions to the Kafka connector. The Kafka Connector source code is available on GitHub.
