Modifying Topic Partitions

Explains how to modify the number of partitions using the Control System and the CLI.

Note: In general, you can increase the number of partitions, but you cannot reduce the number. However, if the topic is associated with a stream for change logs, you cannot modify the number of partitions.

    The Edit Partition window displays.
