Error when creating multiple geo-replicators


The following error message is displayed when setting up replication by using the CLI:

Event Streams API request failed:
Error response from server. Status code: 400. The resource request is invalid. Missing required parameter topic name

The message does not provide accurate information about the cause of the error.


When providing the list of topics to geo-replicate, you added spaces between the topic names in the comma-separated list.

Resolving the problem

Ensure you do not have spaces between the topic names. For example, instead of --topics MyTopicName1, MyTopicName2, MyTopicName3, enter --topics MyTopicName1,MyTopicName2,MyTopicName3.
