After implementing this patch and configuring the necessary assets, when trying to Send a Kafka message, there is a message: 
Error: Could not convert the following value to type java.lang.Object: null


Release : 10.6

Component : CA Service Virtualization


Follow the instructions for Kafka Advanced Use Cases as documented here:
