Code sample

Go

	"io"

	"cloud.google.com/go/pubsublite"
)

// seekSubscription initiates a seek operation for a subscription.

	//   messages.

	//   greater than or equal to the specified timestamp.
	// - pubsublite.EventTime(<time>): seeks to the first message with event
	//   time greater than or equal to the specified timestamp.

	// Waiting for the seek operation to complete is optional. It indicates when
	// subscribers for all partitions are receiving messages from the seek
	// target. If subscribers are offline, the operation will complete once they
	// are online.
