This document describes how to create a consumer group directly in the CKafka console.
We recommend that you limit the number of consumer groups in each instance to 200 or less, since excess consumer groups will result in certain constraints.
Creating a consumer group
2. Click Instance List on the left sidebar and then the ID/Name of your instance to enter the instance details page.
3. On the instance details page, select the Consumer Group tab and click Create Consumer Group.
4. In the pop-up window, enter the consumer group name and select the topic to which you want to subscribe. Note that the consumer group name cannot contain quotation marks ("").
You can select multiple topics.
5. Click Submit, and you can see the created consumer group in the consumer group list.
Disabling automatic consumer group creation
CKafka allows you to disable automatic consumer group creation in the console. After it is disabled, only existing consumer groups in the console can be used for consumption, while new data sync tasks cannot be created normally.
Only Pro Edition 2.4.1 and later are supported.
