Altair® Panopticon


Connector for Panopticon Streams

Retrieves topics using the meta data of applications that are provided by Panopticon Streams Server.


The key provided from the Kafka subscription is automatically selected as the Id Column.





1.     Enter the absolute path, including the http where the Panopticon Streams server is located, in the Streams Server URL box (i.e., http://localhost:8080/streams).

2.     Click . The first application in the Application  drop-down list is selected and the schema of the output topic is displayed if it is started in the Panopticon Streams server.

This also populates the Id Column with the set of columns, of arbitrary type, that can be concatenated to form a unique row identifier.

3.   Click the Application drop-down list box to select another application.

4.     Check the Show Input Topics box to include input topics in the Topic drop-down list.

5.     Select a topic. This populates the list of columns, with the data type found from inspecting the first ‘n’ rows of the file.

6.     Check the From Beginning box to subscribe from the beginning to the latest messages.

If un-checked, you will only be subscribed to the latest messages.

7.     Click  to ensure that the latest schema of the topic is being applied.

8.   Then select:

·         Enabled (determines whether the message field should be processed)

·         Filter (defined parameters that can be used as Filter)

9.   Date/Time values of output data and Date/Time inputs, where supported, are by default unchanged.

You can opt to define the Show in Timezone and Source Timezone settings.
