Configure Bring Your Own Ingest Default Plug-in Instance

Configure a new instance of the default Bring Your Own Ingest (BYOI) plug-in you previously loaded.

To create a new instance for the default plug-in, Tlive-kafka-oc:

  1. Select Configuration>Data Ingest>Settings.
    The Ingest Settings page appears.
  2. Select BYO Ingest Plugins tab on the Ingest Settings page.

    If you loaded the default plug-in, you can see its name as a tab in the Default Plugins page.

    For example, you can see a tab named Tlive-Kafka-oc in the Default Plugins page.

  3. Click + New Instance in Tlive-Kafka-oc tab.
    The Add a tlive-kafka-oc Instance page appears.
  4. Enter details as described in Table 1.
  5. Do one of the following:
    • Click Save — Save your ingest mapping but do not deploy the instance. You can use this option when you are making several changes and want to deploy all your updates at the same time later.
    • Click Save and Deploy — Save the ingest mapping configuration and deploy the configuration.
