Neo4j kafka sink not initializing/working when trying to stream data

Trying to configure a neo4j kafka sink to consume json data from a microservice. Currently after restarting local neo4j client, I do not see any debug messages that indicate the kafka neo4j streams loading. I have provided my neo4j conf and debug trace files. I am pretty new to neo4j so please let me know if I have made any mistakes on either the configuration or neo4j side of things.
`
If it helps I am following this guide to set everything up, unfortunately my company uses 4.2.1 so couldn't use the docker compose to show use case.
Streaming Graphs: Combining Kafka and Neo4j

`
This is my docker of confluent platforms kafka docker compose. This is the docker-compose ps command. I can access everything from localhost:9092 for kafka(tested using kafka-console-consumer --topic friends --bootstrap-server localhost:9092 --from-beginning and it works after producing documents to the topic)

Found the solution myself. Basically, you will need to create a new streams.conf file and add the connection configurations in that conf file, or else it will not start the kafka neo4j streams connection.
