MongoDB Kafka Connector

The MongoDB Connector for Apache Kafka is a Confluent-verified connector that persists data from Apache Kafka topics as a data sink into MongoDB and publishes changes from MongoDB into Kafka topics as a data source.

We recommend that you use one of the following MongoDB partner service offerings to host your Apache Kafka cluster and MongoDB Kafka Connector:

Note

You can also use Atlas Stream Processing, which is a MongoDB-native way to process streaming data by using the MongoDB Query API. It transforms the way that developers build modern applications.

Use Atlas Stream Processing to continuously process streaming data, validate schemas, and materialize views into either Atlas database collections or Apache Kafka topics.

To learn more about Atlas Stream Processing, see the Atlas Stream Processing product page or read the docs.
