Here are more details:
I have Knox installed on edge node and Kafka was installed on NameNode. Client wants to access Kafka via knox gate way. Can some one please let me know which steps need to be followed
Knox does not support Kafka at this point in time. I was about to say why would you do such a thing But then I realized that there can be some valid usecases for small volume topics that should be consumed from outside the cluster.
First Kafka would need a REST consumer API there seem to be an implementation from confluence:
You could then write a knox service for it if you really wanted to.
It's been a while since this question was asked. Does Knox now "play nicer" with Kafka? Regardless of volume, it would sure be nice to insulate sources that want to push data to the HDP/HDF ecosystem from kerberos.
