Hey a quick question - Is there an Http API to do batch inserts into Pinot? Can we skip Kafka ingestion for ingesting real time batches of data using a direct API?

Yeah I was looking for something more lightweight which can be plugged into a production app without needing much effort. An Http Api call seems like one.

fair enough. The ingestion job is effectively wrapping together creating segment(s), uploading them to Pinot's deep store, and then having those segments downloaded to Pinot Servers
it does call the HTTP API to do some of those steps

yeah - to use those APIs it might require similar amount of work that I am trying to save 🙂
