End the execution of a job by clicking the Kill/Terminate button in Uipath Orchestrator

Hi,
What happens if I try to end the execution of a job by clicking the Kill/Terminate button in Uipath Orchestrator?

HI @egarciag96

Kill/Terminate button
Clicking on this button will kill the entire execution forcefully. It is quite similar to what you have in windows task manager. So in task manager we click on Kill process, it terminates the process forcefully. It is exactly the same that happens with the Kill button in the orchestrator.

Stop button
This is bit different. clicking on this will actually stop the execution after it finishes the currently executing steps. So basically, it first stops what it does successfully and then stops the entire execution without executing the next step. It is similar to a normal stopping procedure. If you click on this button, it stops the current process and executes the end process activities and stop successfully. However, in the Kill Process, it forcefully stops what it does irrespective of what it does at the moment.

If this helps, please mark the answer as the solution so it can help others who are seeking for explanations on the same :slight_smile:
