    Hi @Ashutosh Mitkari

    Thank you for posting query in Microsoft Q&A Platform.

    Azure Data Factory doesn't come with a direct way to connect to Kafka. However, there's a workaround to bring data from Kafka into Azure Data Explorer (ADX). ADX is a service designed for quickly exploring and analysing log and telemetry data.

    If you're interested in getting data from Kafka into Azure Data Explorer (ADX), you can make it happen. The documentation offers a detailed, step-by-step explanation of how to achieve this using the Kafka Connect framework.
