As I am looking at the tags associated with your question and the "consumer client" in your question, you are asking about a tool available to manage the offsets for a consumer client that is committing offsets to Kafka. Bad news! There is currently no tool available to manage the offsets for a consumer client that is committing offsets to Kafka. This function is only available for consumers that are committing offsets to Zookeeper. In order to manage offsets for a group that is committing to Kafka, you must use the APIs available in the client to commit offsets for the group.

Question is not very clear but it seems you want to manage kafka offset from a consumer. You can manually manage the offset in your code using a low level consumer client.

It may be an old thread. But I added a tool for the same which may be useful here
