Streamvisor for Apache Pulsar 3.0 Release

We are excited to announce the new Streamvisor 3.0 release!

We understand that Apache Pulsar is an integral part of your company's data strategy and want to make managing it as easy as possible.
This release focuses on further Enterprise integrations as well as enabling you to automate your workflows through REST APIs or CI/CD. Let's take a look what's new!

Overhauled Environment Configuration

We overhauled the old environment configuration to give you a more flexible approach that allows you to set up advanced configurations for each of your Pulsar environments individually.

This also includes updates to the Streamvisor UI, enabling you to really dig deep into the connection configurations and configure them right from the familiar UI.

Note: this is a breaking change that requires making a small manual change to your existing configuration. For more details, please take a look at the release notes.

Opening up the Streamvisor API with Service Accounts

With this new major release of Streamvisor we are opening up our API, and achieve API stability going forward.

Managing your infrastructure manually is a huge task and can become a bottleneck that majorly affects project timelines. Enabling your platform team to automate as much as possible allows you to regain speed.

Finally, we expose an OpenAPI specification of the Streamvisor API, allowing you to automate management of both the Streamvisor platform (e.g. users, environments, permission) as well as Pulsar resources (e.g. topics, schemas, subscriptions).

With the newly introduced Service Accounts, you are now able to integrate Streamvisor directly into your CI/CD pipelines.

Service accounts are available in Streamvisor Enterprise edition.

Google Workspace Integration

Using external group mapping, Streamvisor integrates with your identity provider to inherit group permissions.

Until now, we supported most major providers but fetching groups from Google Workspace was not possible.

With the new Google Workspace integration, you can finally map your Google Workspace groups to Streamvisor internal groups with some slight tweaking of configuration.

External group mapping for Google Workspace is available in Streamvisor Enterprise edition.
