host:portfor your Kafka cluster.
If there are multiple hosts, the format should be
host1:port1, host2:port2, ...
2. Select a topic name.
Note: This should be a pre-existing topic in your cluster.
3. (Optional) Add any additional properties necessary for the Kafka producer. The format should look as follows:
bootstrap.servers = HOST:PORT
security.protocol = SASL_SSL
sasl.jaas.config = org.apache.kafka.common.security.plain.PlainLoginModule required username = "API_KEY" password = "SECRET";
ssl.endpoint.identification.algorithm = https
sasl.mechanism = PLAIN
HOST:PORT= the same Kafka host(s) entered in step 1
API_KEY= an API key for your Kafka cluster
SECRET= the corresponding secret for your API key
