Queries the information about a message by specifying the message ID to determine whether the message is consumed.

Usage notes

  • If a message is not consumed as expected, you can query the message content for troubleshooting.
  • It is an exact search to query a message based on a message ID. The message ID required by the search criteria is obtained from SendResult after a message is sent. Therefore, the producer must store the results of message sending. The information includes properties such as the sending time, Message Queue for Apache RocketMQ broker, message key, and message tag.
