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 either streams or deployments.
With this concept, 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 containing the Apache Kafka® connection information which can be reused among other streams, which will save time and cause administration.
Configs are mapped to resources with the help of label matching. For examples on how this would look in each payload, please reference the streams, deployments, and config payload documentations.
