Enhance add on support for Kafka endpoint in Qlik Replicate

I would like to propose an enhancement to Kafka endpoint in Replicate.

We are using ssl certificate based authentication for Kafka. In this case, we need to supply CA Root certificate chain, public key, private key and the password for private key.

The Kafka endpoint only supports addon to fetch the credential from external vault for the private key password field. However, the private key file content is also a secured artifact that we need to store in external vault. However, Replicate do not support add on for that field.

Please add addon support for private key file field in Kafka endpoint.

We need a clarification to your request.

Are you requesting a field to put the content of the private key file, instead of the file name and password?

Hi there.  Checking again to see if we can get an answer to the above question:

Are you requesting a field to put the content of the private key file, instead of the file name and password?

Hoping we can get some more details to fully understand this request.

Thanks!

Yes, you are right. I am requesting a feature to allow us to provision the contents of the private key file to the Replicate task / endpoint from a password vault using addon.

Thank you for the clarification.  We will consider supporting this option in a future release and will collect feedback in the meantime.  Thank you!

Hi,

We have seen that the Kafka client now supports the use of a Private Key file as content, so provision the contents as a password vault using the Addon can be considered as an option, but it seems our engine currently supports up to 2KB only.
Do you think this limitation can be valid?

Thanks,
Eyal.

Unfortunately 2KB is going to be insufficient. Our current key file is around 8KB in size.

 

I am checking our standards for creating the key files.
