Managing Kafka Connect Harnesses

This topic describes how to work with Kafka Connect Harnesses.

Required IAM Policy

To use Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, you must be given the required type of access in a policy  written by an administrator, whether you're using the Console or the REST API with an SDK, CLI, or other tool. If you try to perform an action and get a message that you don’t have permission or are unauthorized, confirm with your administrator the type of access you've been granted and which compartment  you should work in.

For administrators: The policy in Let streaming users manage streams lets the specified group do everything with streaming and related Streaming service resources.

If you're new to policies, see Getting Started with Policies and Common Policies. If you want to dig deeper into writing policies for the Streaming service, see Details for the Streaming Service in the IAM policy reference.
