Kafka indexing service set useEarliestOffset=true, but didn't create segments for old messages

I am using druid 0.13, kafka indexing service works fine if there are streaming data in the kafka topic. However after stop kafka producer and cleaned druid data. If I want to ingest existing message in kafka topic, even if I set “useEarliestOffset”= true, no segments are created.

Did I do something wrong? Please help,


Druid maintains the offsets it has already indexed, Try using the reset api to reset druid to read from the beginning again.

documented here - http://druid.io/docs/latest/development/extensions-core/kafka-ingestion.html

It was my own mistake, the timestamp column name doesn’t match. It works as designed.
