Kafka Connectors have been deprecated and will be removed on October, 1st 2024. Please refer to the deprecation notice for more information.

Debezium Mysql Source Connector allows you to capture any changes on your Mysql DB and store them as messages on your Kafka topics. In this guide, we will walk you through creating Debezium Mysql Source Connector.

Get Started

Create a Kafka Cluster

If you do not have a Kafka cluster and/or topic already, follow these steps to create one.

Create the Connector

Go to the Connectors tab, and create your first connector by clicking the New Connector button.

Choose your connector as Debezium Mysql Connector for this example

Enter the required properties.

The advanced screen is for any other configuration that the selected connector supports. At the top of this screen, you can find a link to related documentation. We can proceed with what we have and click the Connect button directly.

Congratulations! You have created a Debezium Mysql Source Connector. As you put data into your Mysql DB, you will see that topics prefixed with given Server Name will be created and populated with new data.

You can go to Messages section to see latest events as they are coming from Kafka.
