Stream Catalog


The Confluent Stream Catalog provides a set of tools that make it easier to discover and use streams. Using the Catalog, we can tag streams with relevant details to make them easier to find. We can search through schemas to determine exactly what information is stored in a given stream. And, once we locate the stream, we can add business metadata to help us determine who is responsible for the stream, and what its purpose is. In this video, we'll explore how to use the Stream Catalog. We'll see how to tag streams, add business metadata, search for streams, and use the REST and GraphQL APIs.


  • Tagging Streams
  • Business Metadata

GraphQL API Example

	curl -u <API-KEY>:<API-SECRET> \
	--request POST \
	-H 'content-type: application/json' \
	--url '<SCHEMA-REGISTRY-URL>/catalog/graphql' \
