You can now use AWS CloudFormation to manage Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka (MSK) cluster configurations and SASL/SCRAM secrets. To learn more about Amazon MSK support for AWS CloudFormation, refer to our AWS CloudFormation documentation.

Amazon MSK is a fully managed service for Apache Kafka and Kafka Connect that helps make it easier for you to build and run applications that use Apache Kafka as a data store. Amazon MSK is fully compatible with Apache Kafka, which enables you to quickly migrate your existing Apache Kafka workloads to Amazon MSK with confidence or build new ones from scratch. With Amazon MSK, you can spend more time innovating on applications and less time managing clusters. To learn how to get started, see the Amazon MSK developer guide.

Support for AWS CloudFormation is offered in all AWS regions where Amazon MSK is available.
