RapidAPI allows you to publish Kafka APIs on the marketplace. With Kafka APIs, developers can discover Kafka topics, explore topic schemas and configuration, as well as consume and produce (if enabled) records from a browser.
To add a Kafka API, click "Add New API" on the provider dashboard and select "Kafka" as the API type.
After saving descriptions, click on the API Specs tab and enter the host:port pairs for one or more. bootstrap servers. You have options to enable SSL/TLS and select from the available authentication options.
You can connect to a schema registry (must be compatible with Confluent Schema Registry) to display topic schemas on the marketplace. Currently, RapidAPI supports the Topic Name Strategy as the Subject Name Strategy.
You can either enable or disable producing records from the marketplace. This is useful when initially creating a topic or for debugging.
Like other APIs, when you first create a Kafka API, it is private. Only you (if created in your personal context), or your team (if created in a team context) can access the API on the marketplace.
To invite other users, teams, or organizations to access your private API on the marketplace, click on Global Settings, select user, team, or organization and then search for, select, and click invite your API consumer.
