Subject [jira] [Commented] (KAFKA-4808) send of null key to a compacted topic should throw error back to user
Date Mon, 27 Feb 2017 18:43:45 GMT

Mayuresh Gharat commented on KAFKA-4808:
----------------------------------------

[~ijuma] I was thinking if throwing "INVALID_REQUEST" exception should work here, or do we
need to add a new Exception type (which would require a KIP)?

> If a message with a null key is produced to a compacted topic, the broker returns `CorruptRecordException`,
which is a retriable exception. As such, the producer keeps retrying until retries are exhausted
or request.timeout.ms expires and eventually throws a TimeoutException. This is confusing
and not user-friendly.
> We should throw a meaningful error back to the user. From an implementation perspective,
we would have to use a non retriable error code to avoid this issue.
