Kafka Consumer outputs excessive trace statements to console

Hi!, I’m using the Kafka module from the marketplace to connect with a cluster in confluent, once deployed (kubernetes) the application start to log an excessive amount of trace entries, all these entries make the app’s log unusable, in order to hide these entries I set the output level of the kafka node to “warning” (does not work). I also tried adding the log4j.properties file to the proyect with all the entries bellow (does not work either). log4j.properties log4j.logger.org.apache.kafka.clients.consumer.internals.Fetcher=WARN log4j.logger.kafka=WARN log4j.logger.org.apache.kafka=WARN log4j.rootLogger=WARN log4j.logger.org.apache.kafka.streams=WARN   Log   Can you please help me to hide those entries?
