Starting from Lenses 5.0, all core services in Lenses are managed by Connections.
It applies to:
Connections might be managed (created, updated or deleted) without restarting Lenses,
any changes are applied immediately after the connection is changed.
Connections might be managed:
Admin ➡ Connections
Some types of connections have additional limitations (for example: there might be at most 1 Kafka connection).
All information specific for a given connection type can be found
in dedicated subpages, e.g. Kafka brokers.
When creating (or editing) a connection with GUI, there is a connectivity test executed before saving the connection.
It allows to check whether connection’s configuration is correct and whether Lenses is able to
properly connect to third-party software.
Also, there is a dedicated API endpoint to test connection configuration. See API documentation.
