The following restrictions affect the manner in which a Kafka sync destination is used:

  • The sync source must be a Ping Identity sync source.
  • The changelog backend must be enabled on all instances of the PingDirectory server.
  • To ensure the availability of an entry's attributes from before and after a change, the configuration property changelog-include-key-attribute must include '*'.
  • The Sync Pipe must be configured in Notification mode (synchronization-mode:notification) because a Kafka sync destination cannot retrieve the current version of a destination entry.
