How to properly decommission a Kafka Broker?

Contributor

Hi, we have a couple of brokers that need to be life-cycled out.  We have reassigned all topics to the other brokers in the cluster and Stopped the Kafka role on that host.  To totally remove it, is it as simple as choosing the Instance and then from the Action Menu -> Delete? 

CM -> Kafka -> Instances -> (choose instance) -> Actions Menu -> Delete

I don't see a "Decommission" option like with a Datanode.  Anything need to be done in ZooKeeper or does the "Delete" option handle that?  Thank you!

The answer was to simply "Delete" the instance(s) from CM since no data resided on them
