Kafka Data sets does not support Global Resources
Not able to set the Topic name and Kafka Configuration instance as a Global Resource by referencing a data page =D_GetKafkaTopicName.TopicName or =D_KafkaInstance.InstanceName in a Kafka data set . Our Kafka topics are different in each environment and we have over 13 environments and there are over 4 topics in each environment in the current release. Unless we manage the Topic names using Global resources we will be forced to unlock the rules sets in each high environment to delete/create the data set and this is very counter intuitive. what are the other options of migration of these data sets to higher environments without having to unlock rulesets and delete/create data sets . Appreciate help.
***Moderator Edit-Vidyaranjan: Updated SR details***
Per the current implementation, it is not supported as we would be selecting the topic name from the drop down and once the dataset is saved, the selected topic name on the dataset rule instance becomes read-only. We can further investigate about the work around if any to this via SR-D41497.
