             Summary: ConsoleConsumer behavior inconsistent when specifying 
--partition --from-beginning 
                 Key: KAFKA-6764
             Project: Kafka
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: consumer
            Reporter: Larry McQueary

Per its usage statement, {{}} ignores 
{{\-\-from-beginning}} when the specified consumer group has committed offsets, 
and sets {{auto.offset.reset}} to {{latest}}. However, if {{\-\-partition}} is 
also specified, {{\-\-from-beginning}} is observed in all cases, whether there 
are committed offsets or not.

This happens because when {{\-\-from-beginning}} is specified, {{offsetArg}} is 
set to {{OffsetRequest.EarliestTime}}. However, {{offsetArg}} is [only passed 
to the 
 for {{NewShinyConsumer}} when {{\-\-partition}} is also specified.

This case should either be handled consistently, or the usage statement should 
be modified to indicate the actual behavior/usage.
