Subject Re: How do I tell Kafka Streams not to repartition?
Date Fri, 09 Aug 2019 22:31:04 GMT
In case I'm not making myself clear, any operation that changes the record
key will result in repartition. Since you don't want that, you shall choose
to call groupByKey afterwards and aggregation will happen on `parent id`
