Apache Kafka® REST proxy authorization#

The Apache Kafka® REST proxy authorization, when enabled on your Aiven for Apache Kafka® service, allows the delegation of user authentication and authorization to Apache Kafka. Karapace will forward the HTTP basic authentication credentials to Apache Kafka, and Apache Kafka then performs the authentication and authorization based on the ACLs.

Apache Kafka® REST proxy authorization is disabled by default on all Aiven for Apache Kafka® services.
