Source CRD configurations
This document lists CRD configurations available for Pulsar source connectors. The source CRD configurations consist of source connector configurations and the common CRD configurations.
This table lists source configurations.

|The class name of a source connector.|

|The configurations about the Pulsar cluster. For details, see messaging.|
In Kubernetes, an annotation defines an unstructured Key Value Map (KVM) that can be set by external tools to store and retrieve metadata.
annotations must be a map of string keys and string values. Annotation values must pass Kubernetes annotations validation. For details, see Kubernetes documentation on Annotations.
This example shows how to use an annotation to make an object unmanaged. Therefore, the Controller will skip reconciling unmanaged objects in reconciliation loop.
This section describes image options available for Pulsar source CRDs.
The base runner is an image base for other runners. The base runner is located at
./pulsar-functions-base-runner. The base runner image contains basic tool-chains like
/pulsar/lib to ensure that the
pulsar-admin CLI tool works properly to support Apache Pulsar Packages.
Function Mesh uses runner images as images of Pulsar connectors. Each runner image only contains necessary tool-chains and libraries for specified runtime.
Pulsar connectors support using the Java runner images as their images. The Java runner is based on the base runner and contains the Java function instance to run Java functions or connectors. The
streamnative/pulsar-functions-java-runner Java runner is stored at the Docker Hub and is automatically updated to align with Apache Pulsar release.
Image pull policies
When the Function Mesh Operator creates a container, it uses the
imagePullPolicy option to determine whether the image should be pulled prior to starting the container. There are three possible values for the
|Always pull the image.|
|Never pull the image.|
|Only pull the image if the image does not already exist locally.|
Function Mesh provides Pulsar cluster configurations in the Function, Source, and Sink CRDs. You can configure TLS encryption, TLS authentication, and OAuth2 authentication using the following configurations.
tlsSecretare exclusive. If you configure TLS configurations, the TLS Secret will not take effect.
|The authentication configurations of the Pulsar cluster. Currently, you can only configure OAuth2 authentication through this field. For other authentication methods, you can configure them using the |
|The name of the authentication ConfigMap that stores authentication configurations of the Pulsar cluster.|
|The name of the ConfigMap that stores Pulsar cluster configurations.|
|The TLS configurations of the Pulsar cluster.|
|The name of the TLS ConfigMap that stores TLS configurations of the Pulsar cluster.|
Function Mesh provides the following fields for stateful configurations in the CRD definition.
|The state storage configuration for the source connector.|
|The service URL that points to the state storage service. By default, the state storage service is the BookKeeper table service.|
|(Optional) If you want to overwrite the default configuration, you can use the state storage configuration for the Java runtime. For example, you can change it to other backend services other than the BookKeeper table service.|
|The Java class name of the state storage provider implementation. The class must implement the |
|The configurations that are passed to the state storage provider.|
The output topics of a Pulsar Function. This table lists options available for the
|The output topic of a Pulsar Function (If none is specified, no output is written).|
|The map of output topics to SerDe class names (as a JSON string).|
|The built-in schema type or custom schema class name to be used for messages sent by the function.|
|The producer specifications. Available options: |
|The map of output topics to Schema class names (as a JSON string).|
When you specify a function or connector, you can optionally specify how much of each resource they need. The resources available to specify are CPU and memory (RAM).
If the node where a Pod is running has enough of a resource available, it's possible (and allowed) for a Pod to use more resources than its
request for that resource. However, a Pod is not allowed to use more than its resource
Function Mesh provides the
secretsMap field for Function, Source, and Sink in the CRD definition. You can refer to the created secrets under the same namespace and the controller can include those referred secrets. The secrets are provide by
EnvironmentBasedSecretsProvider, which can be used by
context.getSecret() in Pulsar functions and connectors.
secretsMap field is defined as a
Map struct with
String keys and
SecretReference values. The key indicates the environment value in the container, and the
SecretReference is defined as below.
|The name of the secret in the Pod's namespace to select from.|
|The key of the secret to select from. It must be a valid secret key.|
Suppose that there is a Kubernetes Secret named
credential-secret defined as below:
To use it in Pulsar Functions in a secure way, you can define the
secretsMap in the Custom Resource:
Then, in the Pulsar Functions and Connectors, you can call
context.getSecret("username") to get the secret value (
Function Mesh supports running Pulsar connectors in Java.
|The path to the JAR file for the connector.|
|It specifies JVM options to better configure JVM behaviors, including |
|It specifies the dependent directory for the JAR package.|
In Function Mesh, the Pulsar cluster is defined through a ConfigMap. Pods can consume ConfigMaps as environment variables in a volume. The Pulsar cluster ConfigMap defines the Pulsar cluster URLs.
|The Web service URL of the Pulsar cluster.|
|The broker service URL of the Pulsar cluster.|
To enable health checks, you need to create a PVC and a PV, and bind the PVC to the PV. Then, you can use the
--set controllerManager.grpcurlPersistentVolumeClaim=<your_pvc_name>option to specify the PVC when installing the Function Mesh Operator.
With the Kubernetes liveness probe, Function Mesh supports monitoring and acting on the state of Pods (Containers) to ensure that only healthy Pods serve traffic. Implementing health checks using probes provides Function Mesh a solid foundation, better reliability, and higher uptime.
initialDelaySeconds: 10 # --- 
periodSeconds: 10 # --- 
# Other configs
initialDelaySeconds: specify the time that should wait before performing the first liveness probe.
periodSeconds: specify the frequency to perform a liveness probe.
For more information about probe types, probe check mechanisms, and probe parameters, see Kubernetes documentation on Pod lifecycle and configure probes.
Function Mesh supports customizing the Pod running connectors. This table lists sub-fields available for the
|Specify labels attached to a Pod.|
