ApsaraMQ for RocketMQ:OnsGroupDelete

Last Updated:Jul 21, 2023

Deletes a consumer group.

Operation Description

  • API operations provided by Alibaba Cloud are used to manage and query resources of Alibaba Cloud services. We recommend that you integrate these API operations only in management systems. Do not use these API operations in the core system of messaging services. Otherwise, system risks may occur.
  • After you delete a group, the consumers in the group immediately stop receiving messages. Exercise caution when you call this operation.

You can call this operation to delete a group when you need to reclaim the resources of the group. For example, after an application is brought offline, you can delete the groups that are used for the application. After you delete a group, the backend of ApsaraMQ for RocketMQ reclaims the resources of the group. The system requires a long period of time to reclaim the resources. We recommend that you do not create a group that uses the same name as a deleted group immediately after you delete the group. If the system fails to delete the specified group, troubleshoot the issue based on the error code.
