To run Kafka Connect in Minikube, you can follow these steps:

  1. Start Minikube: minikube start
  2. Set the Docker environment variables to use Minikube's Docker daemon: eval $(minikube docker-env)
  3. Create a new namespace for Kafka Connect: kubectl create namespace kafka
  4. Change the current namespace to the newly created namespace: kubectl config set-context --current --namespace=kafka
  5. Build the Kafka Connect Docker image: cd
  6. Create and apply a Kafka Connect deployment: kubectl apply -f kafka-connect-deployment.yaml Here's an example of kafka-connect-deployment.yaml file: apiVersion: apps/v1 kind: Deployment metadata: name: kafka-connect labels: app: kafka-connect spec: replicas: 1 selector: matchLabels: app: kafka-connect template: metadata: labels: app: kafka-connect spec: containers: - name: kafka-connect image: kafka-connect:latest ports: - containerPort: 8083
  7. Expose the Kafka Connect deployment as a service: kubectl expose deployment kafka-connect --type=LoadBalancer --port=8083
  8. Get the external IP of the Kafka Connect service: kubectl get service kafka-connect Note the "EXTERNAL-IP" value, as you will need it to access Kafka Connect.


Now, you can access Kafka Connect by using the external IP obtained in the previous step, e.g., http://<external_ip>:8083.
