# Can MSK Connect worked as Standalone Worker?

0

According to the confluent document kafka-connect-worker-configuration, Kafka connect can be configure as `standalone` worker by specifying `offset.storage.file.filename` in the connector configuration

``````offset.storage.file.filename="offset-storage"
``````

but after I create the MSK connector, it turns out to be a distributed worker. It creates `group_id`, and internal Kafka topics such as `config_storage`, `offset storage` and `status_storage` with many partitions.

So I wonder if I can create the `standalone` MSK Connector.
Thank you,
