Adding consumer group much before adding consumers to it

Let’s suppose I add a consumer group 30 days prior to actually adding a consumer to that group. In the case, will the consumer start consuming messages from when it is registered or from when the consumer group is registered i.e. 30 days prior?

Hi @rafka - you don’t create a consumer group explicitly. It gets created when you start a consumer client instance. The consumer group will take the name you provide in the consumer configs - which is a required.

Hope this clears things up
