Amazon MSK Connect now supports external secrets and configuration with config providers

Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka (Amazon MSK) now allows custom configuration providers for MSK Connect. With this capability, you can store secrets with providers such as Amazon Secrets Manager and avoid storing passwords and other credentials in connector and worker configuration properties. You can supply any Apache Kafka compatible ConfigProvider as part of an MSK Connect plugin, and use this to fetch configuration.
