I'm trying to figure out how to force a snapshot of an existing mysql connector. I can't seem to find anything in the documentation about it. My current use case is that we have a staging database that is stale most of the time. I'm testing a few of these connectors and one of the tests is to make sure the consumers on the other side of the debezium topic can handle a new snapshot.
Here's what I've tried so far:
- curl -X DELETE the connector
- delete the debezium topic
- curl -X POST the connector config to create it
When I do the above, the API returns 201 and I can see that the connector was created, but the topic itself is empty. The status is RUNNING, but it doesn't seem to actually do anything.
