How to configure Kafka+ Platform

  • On the Stacks page, the "Configure new stack" button on the top page
  • On the Projects page, select Project where you want to configure a new stack at
Once you initiate "Configure Stack," follow the steps on the Configure a new Stack page:
  1. Select the Project where you want to deploy the new stack at.
  2. Select the cloud Target Platform, such as Amazon AWS.
