If only topic is specified, that is what is removed.
NOTE - A topic can be removed without first removing the subscription.
subscription

Dictionary containing a subscripton name associated with a topic (required), along with optional ack_deadline, push_endpoint and pull.

Notes

Note

  • Subscription pull happens before publish. You cannot publish and pull in the same task.
