rpk group offset-delete

Forcefully delete offsets for a Kafka group.

The broker will only allow the request to succeed if the group is in a dead state (no subscriptions) or there are no subscriptions for offsets for topic/partitions requested to be deleted.

Use either the --from-file or the --topic option. They are mutually exclusive. To indicate which topics or topic partitions you’d like to remove offsets from use the --topic (-t) flag, followed by a comma separated list of partition IDs. Supplying no list will delete all offsets for all partitions for a given topic.

You may also provide a text file to indicate topic/partition tuples. Use the --from-file flag for this option. The file must contain lines of topic/partitions separated by a tab or space. Example:

topic_a 0
topic_a 1
topic_b 0
