Need confirmation after message is received by Kafka topic



Requirement for a confirmation message indicating that a specific message is received by the Kafka topic. Unable to differentiate between the successive posts through the Kafka acknowledgement ID. Requirement for each of the message posted to have a Message ID with a corresponding Acknowledgement ID. It can be used for validation at the Kafka side to verify if the respective Message ID is posted successfully when required. No mechanism is provided by Pega to validate or confirm a successful post to Kafka topic.
