Viewing Consumer Connection Addresses

You can view connection addresses of consumers using either of the following methods:

  • Method 1: View consumer connection addresses on the management console.
  • Method 2: View consumer connection addresses on Kafka Manager.
  • The connection address of a consumer can be viewed only when the consumer is connected to a Kafka instance.
