cockroachdb_changefeed

Listens to a CockroachDB Core Changefeed and creates a message for each row received. Each message is a json object looking like:

{
	"primary_key": "[\"1a7ff641-3e3b-47ee-94fe-a0cadb56cd8f\", 2]", // stringifed JSON array
	"row": "{\"after\": {\"k\": \"1a7ff641-3e3b-47ee-94fe-a0cadb56cd8f\", \"v\": 2}, \"updated\": \"1637953249519902405.0000000000\"}", // stringified JSON object
	"table": "strm_2"
}

This input will continue to listen to the changefeed until shutdown. A backfill of the full current state of the table will be delivered upon each run unless a cache is configured for storing cursor timestamps, as this is how Redpanda Connect keeps track as to which changes have been successfully delivered.

Note: You must have SET CLUSTER SETTING kv.rangefeed.enabled = true; on your CRDB cluster, for more information refer to the official CockroachDB documentation.

Fields

dsn

A Data Source Name to identify the target database.

Type: string

# Examples

dsn: postgres://user:password@example.com:26257/defaultdb?sslmode=require

tls

Custom TLS settings can be used to override system defaults.

Type: object

tls.skip_cert_verify

Whether to skip server side certificate verification.

Type: bool

Default: false

tls.enable_renegotiation

Whether to allow the remote server to repeatedly request renegotiation. Enable this option if you’re seeing the error message local error: tls: no renegotiation.

Type: bool

Default: false Requires version 3.45.0 or newer

tls.root_cas

An optional root certificate authority to use. This is a string, representing a certificate chain from the parent trusted root certificate, to possible intermediate signing certificates, to the host certificate.

This field contains sensitive information that usually shouldn’t be added to a config directly, read our secrets page for more info.

Type: string

Default: ""

# Examples

root_cas: |-
  -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
  ...
  -----END CERTIFICATE-----

tls.root_cas_file

An optional path of a root certificate authority file to use. This is a file, often with a .pem extension, containing a certificate chain from the parent trusted root certificate, to possible intermediate signing certificates, to the host certificate.

Type: string

Default: ""

# Examples

root_cas_file: ./root_cas.pem

tls.client_certs

A list of client certificates to use. For each certificate either the fields cert and key, or cert_file and key_file should be specified, but not both.

Type: array

Default: []

# Examples

client_certs:
  - cert: foo
    key: bar

client_certs:
  - cert_file: ./example.pem
    key_file: ./example.key

tls.client_certs[].cert

A plain text certificate to use.

Type: string

Default: ""

tls.client_certs[].key

A plain text certificate key to use.

This field contains sensitive information that usually shouldn’t be added to a config directly, read our secrets page for more info.

Type: string

Default: ""

tls.client_certs[].cert_file

The path of a certificate to use.

Type: string

Default: ""

tls.client_certs[].key_file

The path of a certificate key to use.

Type: string

Default: ""

tls.client_certs[].password

A plain text password for when the private key is password encrypted in PKCS#1 or PKCS#8 format. The obsolete pbeWithMD5AndDES-CBC algorithm is not supported for the PKCS#8 format. Warning: Since it does not authenticate the ciphertext, it is vulnerable to padding oracle attacks that can let an attacker recover the plaintext.

This field contains sensitive information that usually shouldn’t be added to a config directly, read our secrets page for more info.

Type: string

Default: ""

# Examples

password: foo

password: ${KEY_PASSWORD}

tables

CSV of tables to be included in the changefeed

Type: array

# Examples

tables:
  - table1
  - table2

cursor_cache

A cache resource to use for storing the current latest cursor that has been successfully delivered, this allows Redpanda Connect to continue from that cursor upon restart, rather than consume the entire state of the table.

Type: string

options

A list of options to be included in the changefeed (WITH X, Y…​). NOTE: Both the CURSOR option and UPDATED will be ignored from these options when a cursor_cache is specified, as they are set explicitly by Redpanda Connect in this case.

Type: array

# Examples

options:
  - virtual_columns="omitted"

auto_replay_nacks

Whether messages that are rejected (nacked) at the output level should be automatically replayed indefinitely, eventually resulting in back pressure if the cause of the rejections is persistent. If set to false these messages will instead be deleted. Disabling auto replays can greatly improve memory efficiency of high throughput streams as the original shape of the data can be discarded immediately upon consumption and mutation.

Type: bool

Default: true
