We a Confluent Kafka VPC that is accessible inside our kubernetes cluster. We have somes microservices inside the istio mesh that need to access to the Confluent Kafka cluster.
When we deploy a service in the cluster with istio disabled (without the sidecar) the connection works just fine, but when we enable istio we are getting an error " Cant connect to right Controller"" and it seems the service is not able to connect to kafka.
I think it might have something to do with istio network. Do anyone have any idea of what might be happening?
