Base model for Kafka assets.

Reference documentation

This is reference documentation covering the entire Atlan model. It is not the best place to start when trying to understand managing Kafka assets in Atlan. For that, we would suggest starting with either:

  • Patterns — walkthroughs of common multi-step implementation patterns.

    link Kafka "../kafka"
    class EventStore {

    EventStore <|-- Kafka : extends
    class Catalog {

    Kafka <|-- KafkaTopic : extends
    class KafkaConsumerGroup
    link KafkaConsumerGroup "../entities/kafkaconsumergroup"

The following illustrates how the various Kafka objects inter-relate with each other:
