    Hi Team,

    We have a requirement to connect to a kerberised kafka server from OSB. The Kafka servers are secured so we will need extra level of authentication in OSB servers.

    We followed each and every step provided in this blog and also made some customization to handle the extra level of authentication.

    1. Setting up transport in OSB Console/Jdeveloper by installing transport.ear and transport.jar file in OSB_DOMAIN/lib.
    2. Placed the transport-kafka.xml under osb/config
    3. Deployed the ear and jar in weblogic console.
    4. Created a kerberos-kafka-client-jaas.conf file which contains the keytab file details.
    5. Imported kafka certificates in weblogic KSS keystore.
    6. Set up a dummy proxy having the kafka broker details and topic name alongwith Group Identifier.
    7. Created pipeline in to log the message consumed.

    After setting up all the above mentioned changes we are not seeing any success/error messages in the server logs. Even we checked with the Kafka engineers and they are not seeing any consumers at their topic.

    Can you please provide some help on this.

    Thanks and regards,
