Subject [jira] [Commented] (KAFKA-4107) Support offset reset capability in Kafka Connect
Date Thu, 21 Sep 2017 21:54:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KAFKA-4107?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16175520#comment-16175520

Alla Tumarkin commented on KAFKA-4107:
--------------------------------------

Additional feedback from a user:

"What we are looking for is the ability to have Kafka Connect write to time based indices
and keep track of the offset. For example, if kafka connect bounces, we don't want it to rewrite
data but just start from the last offset."

> It would be useful in some cases to be able to reset connector offsets. For example,
if a topic in Kafka corresponding to a source database is accidentally deleted (or deleted
because of corrupt data), an administrator may want to reset offsets and reproduce the log
from the beginning. It may also be useful to have support for overriding offsets, but that
seems like a less likely use case.
