Add a property or switch to enable generating Kafka event for failed executions.
Customers in financial industry need ODM to generate Kafka events for failed executions same way as successful executions for auditiability, explainability, and compliance requirements.
The current workaround is for the client app to monitor the HTTP response code, if it is anything else other than 200 it would emit events manually to Kafka. This approach is not optimum, error prone, and has a lot of possible cons:
For each client app, it must maintain Kafka certificates for connectivity and refresh them periodically.
The message structure sent by the app can be different than the message structure generated by ODM which could make it confusing when comparing failed executions to successful executions.
Extra burden on the client app and additional code maintenance which can be easily avoided by a switch in the product.
Advantages of having this feature in the product:
Central processing for all events
One time config which can be turned on for all apps
Less management overhead.
Coheasivness of the solution.
Help customers with compliance, auditability, and explainability requirements
