When enabling the Kafka exporter (
strimziOverrides.kafkaExporter), the instance of Event Streams enters a failed state and the operator logs show failure to reconcile due to a
NullPointerException. The Kafka exporter is not deployed.
The exception is thrown because the operator is accessing incorrect resources when configuring the Kafka exporter.
