Kafka exporter is not deployed


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.
