Hi@akhtar,

Bootstrap.servers is a mandatory field in Kafka Producer API. It contains a list of host/port pairs for establishing the initial connection to the Kafka cluster. The client will make use of all servers irrespective of which servers are specified here for bootstrapping. This servers list should be in the form host1:port1,host2:port2,....

Thank You
