Allow users to define Kafka customer group id #3976
Be able to define a customer group id for Kafka inputs.
There is a hardcoded customer group id set to graylog2.
Allow user to supply the name through UI for each Kafka input and get rid of the default one whatsoever.
Steps to Reproduce (for bugs)
If you have more than one Graylog setup inside a company and someone else connects to the same Kafka topic it might be troublesome. Also some ops teams may not allow generic customer group ids like graylog2.
I can confirm running into the problem in real life. Another team subscribed to our kafka and "stole" some of our logging before we caught on to the problem and switched the inputs off.
In addition it would make migrating a team of a shared graylog to a dedicated one a lot easier if two graylog instances could both consume from the same kafka in parrallel for a while to build up some logging history.
