Confluent Cloud
Describes how to use Phirestream with Confluent Cloud.
Phirestream can redact PHI, PII, and other sensitive information from data streams in Apache Kafka running on Confluent Cloud.
This guide requires you have an Apache Kafka cluster running in Confluent Cloud. Refer to Confluent Cloud's Getting Started page.

Launch Phirestream

Confluent Cloud deploy Apache Kafka clusters in Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud. Launch Phirestream in the same cloud through the cloud marketplaces:

Connect Phirestream to the Confluent Cloud Kafka Brokers

Once Phirestream has launched, open an SSH connection into the instance.
1
ssh -i privatekey.pem [email protected]
Copied!
Now we need to edit Phirestream's settings to specify the list of Kafka brokers. Open the /opt/phirestream/config/application.properties file.
1
sudo nano /opt/phirestream/application.properties
Copied!
Look for the kafka.bootstrap.servers setting. Set the value of that setting to your broker addresses, for example:
1
kafka.bootstrap.servers=[msk-broker-addresses]
Copied!
Next, save and close the settings file. Restart Phirestream for the change to take effect.
1
sudo systemctl restart phirestream
Copied!
Phirestream is now ready to receive data via its Kafka-compliant REST API. The redacted text will be written to the Kafka cluster on the appropriate topic.
See the Quick Start for Phirestream API usage examples.
