Is there a way to use topic operator with zookeepr?

I want to use it for programmatic management of my topics, but my kafka is hosted in confluent and I don't think I can access the zookeeper cluster there

Without zookeeper that is, I need topic operator without touching zookeeper

I'm afraid that is not possible. The Topic Operator is currently using Zookeeper for storing some additional data, so it it really needed there. Since Zookeeper will be removed from Kafka in the future, we have some plans to change it to use Kafka as its storage instead of Zookeeper. Once that is done, you should be able to use it. Until then, it will need Zookeeper access.

Thanks & Regards
