Confluent Connected You can now consume and produce messages through Confluent in any Application, Workflow, or Scheduled Job.

Use Confluent in APIs

Connect to your Confluent integration from Superblocks by creating steps in Application backend APIs, Workflows, and Scheduled Jobs. A Confluent step can perform a Consume or Produce action.


For Kafka-based integrations, Consume steps must be added inside a Stream block, whereas Produce actions cannot. For general concepts around streaming in Superblocks, see Streaming Applications.
