DataCater offers Configs as a means to defining the configuration of resources, such as Streams or Deployments, at one central location and sharing them between multiple object instances.
Configs can be used as a way to outsource the configuration of Streams or Deployments.
With Configs, users can create building blocks for individual configurations and connect them to a Stream or Deployment with the help of selector labels.
As a practical example, users could create a Config holding the connection credentials for a Apache Kafka® cluster that is used by multiple Streams. Configs save time and ease the administration of configurations.
Configs specify labels that can be referenced by, for instance, Streams or Deployments, in a configSelector for mapping purposes.
