There are trade-offs to consider when using manual topic-partition assignment:
Failures won’t result in topic partitions being reassigned, even for consumers with the same group ID. Any changes in assignments will require another call to .consumer.assign

it is not clear to me about the mentioned trade-off - in case of failure no one other consumer with the same group-id will not be able to consumer from this partition or what ?

Could you please clarify ?

Thanks in advance,
