Re-balancing Kafka Topics

Expert Contributor
Hi All - For Re-balancing Kafka Topics, we can set property -> auto.leader.rebalance.enable = true in config file (server.properties file).
Is that the recommended way or is it better to reBalance the kafka partitions manually ? (using scripts - kafka-preferred-replica-election.sh, kafka-reassign-partition.sh)
One of the blogs mentioned that - it is preferable to Re-balance Kafka topics manually, since setting auto.leader.rebalance.enable = true causes issues.
Pls let me know.
Any other best practices wrt. Re-balancing kafka topics ? thanks!
