One of our UCs asks for outputting data out of Kafka Connector sink to Elastic Search (Logstash is bypassed).
Now Elastic 6.6 needs SSL to be enabled (which is ok as it should be there for other security considerations).
However this does not work, Kafka Connect does not seem to speak SSL at the moment.
Moreover, here is a quote from their site: https://docs.confluent.io/3.1.2/connect/connect-elasticsearch/docs/elasticsearch_connector.html#security
The Elasticsearch connector can read data from secure Kafka by following the instructions in the Connect security documentation. The functionality to write data to a secured Elasticsearch instance is not yet implemented.
Is this known to the ES team ? While not exactly your problem it impacts an important interface of your product, maybe you know more on it.
Any hint appreciated.
