How to delete a topic in Kafka 0 8 1 1

0 votes

I need to delete the topic "demo". The Kafka version installed on my system is Apache Kafka 0.8.1.1.

As given in the documentation, I have executed:

bin/kafka-topics.sh --zookeeper localhost:2181 --delete --topic demo
However, I'm getting the following message:

Command must include exactly one action: --list, --describe, --create or --alter
Is there any way to delete this topic?

Thanks in advance!

Deleting topic isn't always working in 0.8.1.1

Deletion of a topic was added in the Kafka Version, 0.8.2

kafka-topics.sh --delete --zookeeper localhost:2181 --topic demo_topic

When you run the above command you will see a message like below:

Topic demo_topic is marked for deletion.
Note: This will have no impact if delete.topic.enable is not set to true.

Hope this works for you!
