None of the downloadable software require a licensed key. They are the full version available to anyone who wants to test it in a non-production environment.

So go ahead and download it to do your testing. Let us know if you have any questions. We are here to help. Cheers!

thanks Erick.

can we have a certification matrix from datastax on what versions of the datastax Cassandra have a compatibility with datastax CDC - kafka connect?

we are planning to use cdc for DSE-Cassandra DB version 6.7.4 .does it support?

if yes, can you post the guidelines and features what datastax cdc offers?

The DataStax CDC Connector for Kafka you're referring to was a labs feature only. This means that it was an alpha version that was never released for general availability.

It is not a supported product at this point. Unfortunately, I don't have any information on the roadmap or when a beta version will be available. Cheers!

You can follow the demo in this blog post. But to reiterate, the CDC connector is an alpha version only (not even beta).

Also, I'm not a Support engineer. If you have any questions, feel free to post them here on the Community where other experts are happy to answer them. Cheers!
