    {
    "configs": {
    "roots": "localhost:9042",
    "keyspace": "pulsar_test_keyspace",
    "columnFamily": "pulsar_test_table",
    "keyname": "key",
    "columnName": "col"
    }
    }

  • YAML


    configs:
    roots: "localhost:9042"
    keyspace: "pulsar_test_keyspace"
    columnFamily: "pulsar_test_table"
    keyname: "key"
    columnName: "col"
