Apache Kafka Connector

Apache Kafka is a framework implementation of a software bus using stream-processing. It is an open-source software platform developed by the Apache Software Foundation written in Scala and Java. The project aims to provide a unified, high-throughput, low-latency platform for handling real-time data feeds.

Simflofy integrates with Apache Kafka to provide federation, synchronization, and integration capabilities across all content and information stored in Apache Kafka.

Simflofy’s Apache Kafka integration allows you to:

  • federate information stored in Apache Kafka repositories for centralized access from within Simflofy
  • migrate content out of Apache Kafka to other systems
  • migrate content into Apache Kafka from other systems​​​​

Simflofy's Authentication Connection initiates the integration to your Apache Kafka instance. This phase is used to configure custom repository fields and authenticate output connections, so that Simflofy can be leveraged to perform discovery on your Apache Kafka content, manage documents and workflows, or migrate content, files, metadata, and applications stored within Apache Kafka.



The Apache Kafka Integration Connection allows for content and metadata to be integrated to or from an Apache Kafka repository based on folder, content type, and document type. 

  • Crawl remote systems for files, folders, metadata, versions, and renditions

  • Push records, metadata, and permissions into the target repository

  • Output files, folders, metadata, versions, and renditions to the associated output system



The Apache Kafka Discovery Connector allows you to quickly locate and access any schemas located in the remote Apache Kafka repository. These include tables, columns, object types, aspects, categories, content types, index fields, or any number of types and their associated metadata within Apache Kafka. 

Simflofy lets you quickly locate and access documents, files, and metadata stored in your Apache Kafka repository for simpler, faster, and more cost-effective eDiscovery.
