This topic includes: Org rules Documentation, tagging Quotas Schema registry Offset management ACL State management and app reset Consumer offset lag monitoring Container Management Controls Cluster Creation and Management Dependency Tracking All of these is disclosed in the Chapter 14 of the book:
