Stop the applications running on this Consumer Group, otherwise you won't be able to delete it. ⚠️
Two ways to delete a Consumer Group in Conduktor
from the main list
from the Consumer Group details
Stop the applications running on this Consumer Group, otherwise the buttons won't be accessible. Don't worry, we clearly state that the group must be stopped before acting on it 😉.
Click on "Change offsets" then configure the strategy to how reset the offsets:
which topic: a consumer group can subscribe to multiple topics
which partition: sometimes you know exactly which message is stuck!
the new offset. It's computed automatically according to a few methods:
Earliest: start from the beginning, reprocess everything!
Latest: start from the end, ignore all the existing records
Latest minus X: just reprocess the latest X records
Current offset + X: to jump over some records
Specific Datetime: when you know when your app started to crash
Current time minus X seconds: just the latest records in time
When you change the strategy, Conduktor automatically recomputes the New Offset (right column).
CHANGE OFFSETS (X) when you're happy with the proposal
X is the number of changes
Don't forget to restart your application! 💪
