Kafka Rest Proxy replacing Consumer Name

Problem we are seeing is that the rest proxy is replacing the consumer specified in the request to restproxy with consumer-$alphanuemeric _value and passing it to Kafka.
This api request is taken from:Confluent REST Proxy API Reference | Confluent Documentation


Is there is any setting(parameter) that will let restproxy know to use exact consumer instead of any alpha numeric alias consumer name?

@Sudhanshu The request supports an id field, which should do what you want. The documentation is not accurate here, so i’ll file an issue on that.

In the meantime, you could try adding an id to your request to see if the behavior is as you wish.
