Schema registry required?

:warning: IMPORTANT, please fill the questions

We assume you are using Bitnami to deploy your application.

  • Which version of the application are you using?:

  • Please choose how you got the application: Installer (Windows, Linux, macOS), cloud image (AWS, GCE, Azure, …) or VM (VMDK, VBOX):
    bitnami/kafka:3.0.0 image

  • Have you installed any plugin or modified any configuration file?:
    No, just the docker-compose.yaml.

  • Describe here your question/suggestion/issue (expected and actual results):
    I’m writing a producer client that sends JSON class objects but it fails because the “schema.registry.url” parameter is not set to a valid Schema Registry URL. It says this is required. Is there a way to get around this requirement for development? Note I can use kafkacat just fine with strings. If it’s required for JSON objects, what registry do you recommend?
    Error: org.apache.kafka.common.config.ConfigException: Missing required configuration “schema.registry.url” which has no default value.

  • Steps to reproduce the issue (if relevant):

  • Copy the apache log (if relevant):
