1. Kafka Bridge overview

Use the Strimzi Kafka Bridge to make HTTP requests to a Kafka cluster.

You can use the Kafka Bridge to integrate HTTP client applications with your Kafka cluster.

HTTP client integration

Internal and external HTTP producers and consumers exchange data with the Kafka brokers through the Kafka Bridge

1.1. Running the Kafka Bridge

Install the Strimzi Kafka Bridge to run in the same environment as your Kafka cluster.

You can download and add the Kafka Bridge installation artifacts to your host machine. To try out the Kafka Bridge in your local environment, see the Kafka Bridge quickstart.

If you deployed Strimzi on Kubernetes, you can use the Strimzi Cluster Operator to deploy the Kafka Bridge to the Kubernetes cluster. You’ll need a running Kafka cluster that was deployed by the Cluster Operator in a Kubernetes namespace. You can configure your deployment to access the Kafka Bridge outside the Kubernetes cluster.

1.2. Kafka Bridge interface

The Kafka Bridge provides a RESTful interface that allows HTTP-based clients to interact with a Kafka cluster.  It offers the advantages of a web API connection to Strimzi, without the need for client applications to interpret the Kafka protocol.

The API has two main resources — consumers and topics — that are exposed and made accessible through endpoints to interact with consumers and producers in your Kafka cluster. The resources relate only to the Kafka Bridge, not the consumers and producers connected directly to Kafka.

1.2.1. HTTP requests

The Kafka Bridge supports HTTP requests to a Kafka cluster, with methods to:

  • Send messages to a topic.

  • Retrieve messages from topics.

  • Retrieve a list of partitions for a topic.

  • Create and delete consumers.

  • Subscribe consumers to topics, so that they start receiving messages from those topics.

  • Retrieve a list of topics that a consumer is subscribed to.

  • Unsubscribe consumers from topics.

  • Assign partitions to consumers.

  • Commit a list of consumer offsets.

  • Seek on a partition, so that a consumer starts receiving messages from the first or last offset position, or a given offset position.

The methods provide JSON responses and HTTP response code error handling. Messages can be sent in JSON or binary formats.

Clients can produce and consume messages without the requirement to use the native Kafka protocol.

Additional resources

1.3. Kafka Bridge OpenAPI specification

Kafka Bridge APIs use the OpenAPI Specification (OAS). OAS provides a standard framework for describing and implementing HTTP APIs.

The Kafka Bridge OpenAPI specification is in JSON format. You can find the OpenAPI JSON files in the src/main/resources/ folder of the Kafka Bridge source download files. The download files are available from the GitHub release page.

You can also use the GET /openapi method to retrieve the OpenAPI v2 specification in JSON format.

Additional resources

1.4. Securing connectivity to the Kafka cluster

You can configure the following between the Kafka Bridge and your Kafka cluster:

  • TLS or SASL-based authentication

  • A TLS-encrypted connection

You configure the Kafka Bridge for authentication through its properties file.

You can also use ACLs in Kafka brokers to restrict the topics that can be consumed and produced using the Kafka Bridge.

Additional resources

1.5. Securing the Kafka Bridge HTTP interface

Authentication and encryption between HTTP clients and the Kafka Bridge is not supported directly by the Kafka Bridge. Requests sent from clients to the Kafka Bridge are sent without authentication or encryption. Requests must use HTTP rather than HTTPS.

You can combine the Kafka Bridge with the following tools to secure it:

  • Network policies and firewalls that define which pods can access the Kafka Bridge

  • Reverse proxies (for example, OAuth 2.0)

  • API gateways

1.6. Requests to the Kafka Bridge

Specify data formats and HTTP headers to ensure valid requests are submitted to the Kafka Bridge.

1.6.1. Content Type headers

API request and response bodies are always encoded as JSON.

  • When performing consumer operations, POST requests must provide the following Content-Type header if there is a non-empty body:

    Content-Type: application/vnd.kafka.v2+json
  • When performing producer operations, POST requests must provide Content-Type headers specifying the embedded data format of the messages produced. This can be either json or binary.

    Embedded data format Content-Type header

    JSON

    Content-Type: application/vnd.kafka.json.v2+json

    Binary

    Content-Type: application/vnd.kafka.binary.v2+json

The embedded data format is set per consumer, as described in the next section.

The Content-Type must not be set if the POST request has an empty body. An empty body can be used to create a consumer with the default values.

1.6.2. Embedded data format

The embedded data format is the format of the Kafka messages that are transmitted, over HTTP, from a producer to a consumer using the Kafka Bridge. Two embedded data formats are supported: JSON and binary.

When creating a consumer using the /consumers/groupid endpoint, the POST request body must specify an embedded data format of either JSON or binary. This is specified in the format field, for example:

{
  "name": "my-consumer",
  "format": "binary", # (1)
  # ...
}
  1. A binary embedded data format.

The embedded data format specified when creating a consumer must match the data format of the Kafka messages it will consume.

If you choose to specify a binary embedded data format, subsequent producer requests must provide the binary data in the request body as Base64-encoded strings. For example, when sending messages using the /topics/topicname endpoint, records.value must be encoded in Base64:

{
  "records": [
    {
      "key": "my-key",
      "value": "ZWR3YXJkdGhldGhyZWVsZWdnZWRjYXQ="
    },
  ]
}

Producer requests must also provide a Content-Type header that corresponds to the embedded data format, for example, Content-Type: application/vnd.kafka.binary.v2+json.

1.6.3. Message format

When sending messages using the /topics endpoint, you enter the message payload in the request body, in the records parameter.

The records parameter can contain any of these optional fields:

  • Message headers

  • Message key

  • Message value

  • Destination partition

Example POST request to /topics
curl -X POST \
  http://localhost:8080/topics/my-topic \
  -H 'content-type: application/vnd.kafka.json.v2+json' \
  -d '{
    "records": [
        {
            "key": "my-key",
            "value": "sales-lead-0001"
            "partition": 2
            "headers": [
              {
                "key": "key1",
                "value": "QXBhY2hlIEthZmthIGlzIHRoZSBib21iIQ==" (1)
              }
            ]
        },
    ]
}'
  1. The header value in binary format and encoded as Base64.

1.6.4. Accept headers

After creating a consumer, all subsequent GET requests must provide an Accept header in the following format:

Accept: application/vnd.kafka.EMBEDDED-DATA-FORMAT.v2+json

The EMBEDDED-DATA-FORMAT is either json or binary.

For example, when retrieving records for a subscribed consumer using an embedded data format of JSON, include this Accept header:

Accept: application/vnd.kafka.json.v2+json

1.7. CORS

Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) allows you to specify allowed methods and originating URLs for accessing the Kafka cluster in your Kafka Bridge HTTP configuration.

Example CORS configuration for Kafka Bridge
# ...
http.cors.enabled=true
http.cors.allowedOrigins=https://strimzi.io
http.cors.allowedMethods=GET,POST,PUT,DELETE,OPTIONS,PATCH

CORS allows for simple and preflighted requests between origin sources on different domains.

Simple requests are suitable for standard requests using GET, HEAD, POST methods.

A preflighted request sends a HTTP OPTIONS request as an initial check that the actual request is safe to send. On confirmation, the actual request is sent. Preflight requests are suitable for methods that require greater safeguards, such as PUT and DELETE, and use non-standard headers.

All requests require an origins value in their header, which is the source of the HTTP request.

1.7.1. Simple request

For example, this simple request header specifies the origin as https://strimzi.io.

Origin: https://strimzi.io

The header information is added to the request.

curl -v -X GET HTTP-ADDRESS/bridge-consumer/records \
-H 'Origin: https://strimzi.io'\
-H 'content-type: application/vnd.kafka.v2+json'

In the response from the Kafka Bridge, an Access-Control-Allow-Origin header is returned.

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Access-Control-Allow-Origin: * (1)
  1. Returning an asterisk (*) shows the resource can be accessed by any domain.

1.7.2. Preflighted request

An initial preflight request is sent to Kafka Bridge using an OPTIONS method. The HTTP OPTIONS request sends header information to check that Kafka Bridge will allow the actual request.

Here the preflight request checks that a POST request is valid from https://strimzi.io.

OPTIONS /my-group/instances/my-user/subscription HTTP/1.1
Origin: https://strimzi.io
Access-Control-Request-Method: POST (1)
Access-Control-Request-Headers: Content-Type (2)
  1. Kafka Bridge is alerted that the actual request is a POST request.

  2. The actual request will be sent with a Content-Type header.

OPTIONS is added to the header information of the preflight request.

curl -v -X OPTIONS -H 'Origin: https://strimzi.io' \
-H 'Access-Control-Request-Method: POST' \
-H 'content-type: application/vnd.kafka.v2+json'

Kafka Bridge responds to the initial request to confirm that the request will be accepted. The response header returns allowed origins, methods and headers.

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Access-Control-Allow-Origin: https://strimzi.io
Access-Control-Allow-Methods: GET,POST,PUT,DELETE,OPTIONS,PATCH
Access-Control-Allow-Headers: content-type

If the origin or method is rejected, an error message is returned.

The actual request does not require Access-Control-Request-Method header, as it was confirmed in the preflight request, but it does require the origin header.

curl -v -X POST HTTP-ADDRESS/topics/bridge-topic \
-H 'Origin: https://strimzi.io' \
-H 'content-type: application/vnd.kafka.v2+json'

The response shows the originating URL is allowed.

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Access-Control-Allow-Origin: https://strimzi.io

1.8. Configuring loggers for the Kafka Bridge

You can set a different log level for each operation that is defined by the Kafka Bridge OpenAPI specification.

Each operation has a corresponding API endpoint through which the bridge receives requests from HTTP clients. You can change the log level on each endpoint to produce more or less fine-grained logging information about the incoming and outgoing HTTP requests.

Loggers are defined in the log4j.properties file, which has the following default configuration for healthy and ready endpoints:

log4j.logger.http.openapi.operation.healthy=WARN, out
log4j.additivity.http.openapi.operation.healthy=false
log4j.logger.http.openapi.operation.ready=WARN, out
log4j.additivity.http.openapi.operation.ready=false

The log level of all other operations is set to INFO by default. Loggers are formatted as follows:

log4j.logger.http.openapi.operation.<operation_id>

Where <operation_id> is the identifier of the specific operation.

List of operations defined by the OpenAPI specification
  • createConsumer

  • deleteConsumer

  • subscribe

  • unsubscribe

  • poll

  • assign

  • commit

  • send

  • sendToPartition

  • seekToBeginning

  • seekToEnd

  • seek

  • healthy

  • ready

  • openapi

2. Kafka Bridge quickstart

Use this quickstart to try out the Strimzi Kafka Bridge in your local development environment.

You will learn how to do the following:

  • Produce messages to topics and partitions in your Kafka cluster

  • Create a Kafka Bridge consumer

  • Perform basic consumer operations, such as subscribing the consumer to topics and retrieving the messages that you produced

In this quickstart, HTTP requests are formatted as curl commands that you can copy and paste to your terminal.

Ensure you have the prerequisites and then follow the tasks in the order provided in this chapter.

In this quickstart, you will produce and consume messages in JSON format.

Prerequisites for the quickstart
  • A Kafka cluster is running on the host machine.

2.1. Downloading a Kafka Bridge archive

A zipped distribution of the Strimzi Kafka Bridge is available for download.

Procedure
  • Download the latest version of the Strimzi Kafka Bridge archive from the GitHub release page.

2.2. Configuring Kafka Bridge properties

This procedure describes how to configure the Kafka and HTTP connection properties used by the Strimzi Kafka Bridge.

You configure the Kafka Bridge, as any other Kafka client, using appropriate prefixes for Kafka-related properties.

  • kafka. for general configuration that applies to producers and consumers, such as server connection and security.

  • kafka.consumer. for consumer-specific configuration passed only to the consumer.

  • kafka.producer. for producer-specific configuration passed only to the producer.

As well as enabling HTTP access to a Kafka cluster, HTTP properties provide the capability to enable and define access control for the Kafka Bridge through Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS). CORS is a HTTP mechanism that allows browser access to selected resources from more than one origin. To configure CORS, you define a list of allowed resource origins and HTTP methods to access them. Additional HTTP headers in requests describe the CORS origins that are permitted access to the Kafka cluster.

Procedure
  1. Edit the application.properties file provided with the Strimzi Kafka Bridge installation archive.

    Use the properties file to specify Kafka and HTTP-related properties, and to enable distributed tracing.

    1. Configure standard Kafka-related properties, including properties specific to the Kafka consumers and producers.

      Use:

      • kafka.bootstrap.servers to define the host/port connections to the Kafka cluster

      • kafka.producer.acks to provide acknowledgments to the HTTP client

      • kafka.consumer.auto.offset.reset to determine how to manage reset of the offset in Kafka

        For more information on configuration of Kafka properties, see the Apache Kafka website

    2. Configure HTTP-related properties to enable HTTP access to the Kafka cluster.

      For example:

      bridge.id=my-bridge
      http.enabled=true
      http.host=0.0.0.0
      http.port=8080 (1)
      http.cors.enabled=true (2)
      http.cors.allowedOrigins=https://strimzi.io (3)
      http.cors.allowedMethods=GET,POST,PUT,DELETE,OPTIONS,PATCH (4)
      1. The default HTTP configuration for the Kafka Bridge to listen on port 8080.

      2. Set to true to enable CORS.

      3. Comma-separated list of allowed CORS origins. You can use a URL or a Java regular expression.

      4. Comma-separated list of allowed HTTP methods for CORS.

2.3. Installing the Kafka Bridge

Follow this procedure to install the Strimzi Kafka Bridge.

Procedure
  1. If you have not already done so, unzip the Kafka Bridge installation archive to any directory.

  2. Run the Kafka Bridge script using the configuration properties as a parameter:

    For example:

    ./bin/kafka_bridge_run.sh --config-file=<path>/configfile.properties
  3. Check to see that the installation was successful in the log.

    HTTP-Kafka Bridge started and listening on port 8080
    HTTP-Kafka Bridge bootstrap servers localhost:9092

2.4. Producing messages to topics and partitions

Use the Kafka Bridge to produce messages to a Kafka topic in JSON format by using the topics endpoint.

You can produce messages to topics in JSON format by using the topics endpoint. You can specify destination partitions for messages in the request body. The partitions endpoint provides an alternative method for specifying a single destination partition for all messages as a path parameter.

In this procedure, messages are produced to a topic called bridge-quickstart-topic.

Prerequisites
  • The Kafka cluster has a topic with three partitions.

    You can use the kafka-topics.sh utility to create topics.

    Example topic creation with three partitions
    bin/kafka-topics.sh --bootstrap-server localhost:9092 --create --topic bridge-quickstart-topic --partitions 3 --replication-factor 1
    Verifying the topic was created
    bin/kafka-topics.sh --bootstrap-server localhost:9092 --describe --topic bridge-quickstart-topic
Note
If you deployed Strimzi on Kubernetes, you can create a topic using the KafkaTopic custom resource.
Procedure
  1. Using the Kafka Bridge, produce three messages to the topic you created:

    curl -X POST \
      http://localhost:8080/topics/bridge-quickstart-topic \
      -H 'content-type: application/vnd.kafka.json.v2+json' \
      -d '{
        "records": [
            {
                "key": "my-key",
                "value": "sales-lead-0001"
            },
            {
                "value": "sales-lead-0002",
                "partition": 2
            },
            {
                "value": "sales-lead-0003"
            }
        ]
    }'
    • sales-lead-0001 is sent to a partition based on the hash of the key.

    • sales-lead-0002 is sent directly to partition 2.

    • sales-lead-0003 is sent to a partition in the bridge-quickstart-topic topic using a round-robin method.

  2. If the request is successful, the Kafka Bridge returns an offsets array, along with a 200 code and a content-type header of application/vnd.kafka.v2+json. For each message, the offsets array describes:

    • The partition that the message was sent to

    • The current message offset of the partition

      Example response
      #...
      {
        "offsets":[
          {
            "partition":0,
            "offset":0
          },
          {
            "partition":2,
            "offset":0
          },
          {
            "partition":0,
            "offset":1
          }
        ]
      }

What to do next

After producing messages to topics and partitions, create a Kafka Bridge consumer.

2.5. Creating a Kafka Bridge consumer

Before you can perform any consumer operations in the Kafka cluster, you must first create a consumer by using the consumers endpoint. The consumer is referred to as a Kafka Bridge consumer.

Procedure
  1. Create a Kafka Bridge consumer in a new consumer group named bridge-quickstart-consumer-group:

    curl -X POST http://localhost:8080/consumers/bridge-quickstart-consumer-group \
      -H 'content-type: application/vnd.kafka.v2+json' \
      -d '{
        "name": "bridge-quickstart-consumer",
        "auto.offset.reset": "earliest",
        "format": "json",
        "enable.auto.commit": false,
        "fetch.min.bytes": 512,
        "consumer.request.timeout.ms": 30000
      }'
    • The consumer is named bridge-quickstart-consumer and the embedded data format is set as json.

    • Some basic configuration settings are defined.

    • The consumer will not commit offsets to the log automatically because the enable.auto.commit setting is false. You will commit the offsets manually later in this quickstart.

      If the request is successful, the Kafka Bridge returns the consumer ID (instance_id) and base URL (base_uri) in the response body, along with a 200 code.

      Example response
      #...
      {
        "instance_id": "bridge-quickstart-consumer",
        "base_uri":"http://<bridge_id>-bridge-service:8080/consumers/bridge-quickstart-consumer-group/instances/bridge-quickstart-consumer"
      }
  2. Copy the base URL (base_uri) to use in the other consumer operations in this quickstart.

What to do next

Now that you have created a Kafka Bridge consumer, you can subscribe it to topics.

Additional resources

2.6. Subscribing a Kafka Bridge consumer to topics

After you have created a Kafka Bridge consumer, subscribe it to one or more topics by using the subscription endpoint. When subscribed, the consumer starts receiving all messages that are produced to the topic.

Procedure
  • Subscribe the consumer to the bridge-quickstart-topic topic that you created earlier, in Producing messages to topics and partitions:

    curl -X POST http://localhost:8080/consumers/bridge-quickstart-consumer-group/instances/bridge-quickstart-consumer/subscription \
      -H 'content-type: application/vnd.kafka.v2+json' \
      -d '{
        "topics": [
            "bridge-quickstart-topic"
        ]
    }'

    The topics array can contain a single topic (as shown here) or multiple topics. If you want to subscribe the consumer to multiple topics that match a regular expression, you can use the topic_pattern string instead of the topics array.

    If the request is successful, the Kafka Bridge returns a 204 (No Content) code only.

What to do next

After subscribing a Kafka Bridge consumer to topics, you can retrieve messages from the consumer.

2.7. Retrieving the latest messages from a Kafka Bridge consumer

Retrieve the latest messages from the Kafka Bridge consumer by requesting data from the records endpoint. In production, HTTP clients can call this endpoint repeatedly (in a loop).

Procedure
  1. Produce additional messages to the Kafka Bridge consumer, as described in Producing messages to topics and partitions.

  2. Submit a GET request to the records endpoint:

    curl -X GET http://localhost:8080/consumers/bridge-quickstart-consumer-group/instances/bridge-quickstart-consumer/records \
      -H 'accept: application/vnd.kafka.json.v2+json'

    After creating and subscribing to a Kafka Bridge consumer, a first GET request will return an empty response because the poll operation starts a rebalancing process to assign partitions.

  3. Repeat step two to retrieve messages from the Kafka Bridge consumer.

    The Kafka Bridge returns an array of messages — describing the topic name, key, value, partition, and offset — in the response body, along with a 200 code. Messages are retrieved from the latest offset by default.

    HTTP/1.1 200 OK
    content-type: application/vnd.kafka.json.v2+json
    #...
    [
      {
        "topic":"bridge-quickstart-topic",
        "key":"my-key",
        "value":"sales-lead-0001",
        "partition":0,
        "offset":0
      },
      {
        "topic":"bridge-quickstart-topic",
        "key":null,
        "value":"sales-lead-0003",
        "partition":0,
        "offset":1
      },
    #...
    Note
    If an empty response is returned, produce more records to the consumer as described in Producing messages to topics and partitions, and then try retrieving messages again.
What to do next

After retrieving messages from a Kafka Bridge consumer, try committing offsets to the log.

2.8. Commiting offsets to the log

Use the offsets endpoint to manually commit offsets to the log for all messages received by the Kafka Bridge consumer. This is required because the Kafka Bridge consumer that you created earlier, in Creating a Kafka Bridge consumer, was configured with the enable.auto.commit setting as false.

Procedure
  • Commit offsets to the log for the bridge-quickstart-consumer:

    curl -X POST http://localhost:8080/consumers/bridge-quickstart-consumer-group/instances/bridge-quickstart-consumer/offsets

    Because no request body is submitted, offsets are committed for all the records that have been received by the consumer. Alternatively, the request body can contain an array (OffsetCommitSeekList) that specifies the topics and partitions that you want to commit offsets for.

    If the request is successful, the Kafka Bridge returns a 204 code only.

What to do next

After committing offsets to the log, try out the endpoints for seeking to offsets.

2.9. Seeking to offsets for a partition

Use the positions endpoints to configure the Kafka Bridge consumer to retrieve messages for a partition from a specific offset, and then from the latest offset. This is referred to in Apache Kafka as a seek operation.

Procedure
  1. Seek to a specific offset for partition 0 of the quickstart-bridge-topic topic:

    curl -X POST http://localhost:8080/consumers/bridge-quickstart-consumer-group/instances/bridge-quickstart-consumer/positions \
      -H 'content-type: application/vnd.kafka.v2+json' \
      -d '{
        "offsets": [
            {
                "topic": "bridge-quickstart-topic",
                "partition": 0,
                "offset": 2
            }
        ]
    }'

    If the request is successful, the Kafka Bridge returns a 204 code only.

  2. Submit a GET request to the records endpoint:

    curl -X GET http://localhost:8080/consumers/bridge-quickstart-consumer-group/instances/bridge-quickstart-consumer/records \
      -H 'accept: application/vnd.kafka.json.v2+json'

    The Kafka Bridge returns messages from the offset that you seeked to.

  3. Restore the default message retrieval behavior by seeking to the last offset for the same partition. This time, use the positions/end endpoint.

    curl -X POST http://localhost:8080/consumers/bridge-quickstart-consumer-group/instances/bridge-quickstart-consumer/positions/end \
      -H 'content-type: application/vnd.kafka.v2+json' \
      -d '{
        "partitions": [
            {
                "topic": "bridge-quickstart-topic",
                "partition": 0
            }
        ]
    }'

    If the request is successful, the Kafka Bridge returns another 204 code.

Note
You can also use the positions/beginning endpoint to seek to the first offset for one or more partitions.
What to do next

In this quickstart, you have used the Strimzi Kafka Bridge to perform several common operations on a Kafka cluster. You can now delete the Kafka Bridge consumer that you created earlier.

2.10. Deleting a Kafka Bridge consumer

Delete the Kafka Bridge consumer that you used throughout this quickstart.

Procedure
  • Delete the Kafka Bridge consumer by sending a DELETE request to the instances endpoint.

    curl -X DELETE http://localhost:8080/consumers/bridge-quickstart-consumer-group/instances/bridge-quickstart-consumer

    If the request is successful, the Kafka Bridge returns a 204 code.
