Kafka Console

The technical documentation of the kafka-console microservice, which provides a GUI to interact with the Kafka broker.

Kafka-console uses Redpanda Console to help you manage and debug your Kafka workloads effortlessy.

With it, you can explore your Kafka topics, view messages, list the active consumers, and more.

How it works

You can access the Kafka console via its Service.

It’s automatically connected to the Kafka broker, so you can start using it right away. You can view the Kafka broker configuration in the Broker tab, and explore the topics in the Topics tab.
