Subject [jira] [Commented] (KAFKA-3073) KafkaConnect should support regular expression for topics
Date Fri, 27 Oct 2017 00:49:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-3073?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16221528#comment-16221528

Ewen Cheslack-Postava commented on KAFKA-3073:

We actually already ended up with some uses of Pattern for configs in transformations. IIRC,
I raised this point when we were discussing those but not promising full Pattern support and
instead just guaranteeing common regex functionality is a reasonable tradeoff. 99% of the
time people will just be using very basic functionality anyway.

> KafkaConsumer supports both a list of topics or a pattern when subscribing. 
> KafkaConnect only supports a list of topics, which is not just more of a hassle to configure
- it also requires more maintenance.
> I suggest adding topics.pattern as a new configuration and letting users choose between
'topics' or 'topics.pattern'.
