[Azure Event Hub] Difference between two connections string RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I try to connect my kafka to an eventhub. I follow steps on official microsoft tutorial , Integrate Apache Kafka Connect support on Azure Event Hubs (Preview)

    But in file configuration ( connect-distributed.properties ) i don't understand a little part.

    In this line sasl.jaas.config=org.apache.kafka.common.security.plain.PlainLoginModule required username="$ConnectionString" password="{YOUR.EVENTHUBS.CONNECTION.STRING}";

    What is the difference between the $ConnectionString and YOUR.EVENTHUBS.CONNECTION.STRING ?

    Best Regards.

  • Hello Briac,

    $connectionString is Username (Key) whereas YOUR.EVENTHUBS.CONNECTION.STRING is the actual connectionstring of your EventHub Namespace (value).

    Hope this helps!
