Set Apache ZooKeeper™ configuration

Apache ZooKeeper™ is a crucial component used by Apache Kafka® and Aiven management software to facilitate efficient cluster operations. By default, access to ZooKeeper is restricted to ensure cluster stability. However, it is possible to modify the ZooKeeper configuration properties as needed.

In order to change ZooKeeper configuration properties follow these steps:

  1. In the Aiven Console, select your project and then choose your Aiven for Apache Kafka® service.
  2. In the service page, select Service settings from the sidebar.
  3. On the Service settings page, scroll down to the Advanced configuration section, and click Configure.
  4. In the Advanced configuration dialog, click Add configuration option to add new configurations or modify the values of existing configurations.
  5. Click Save configuration.

The service configuration will be then updated.


Latest versions of Apache Kafka allow ZooKeeper-less mode, however, you can continue using the advanced configuration settings as before.
