What is the difference between the Stop Job and Terminate Workflow activities?

Hi @ramirezp,

  • Stop - Stop the job in a safe manner, when a Should Stop activity is encountered in the workflow.
  • Terminate - Forcefully stop the job, regardless of where the execution is.

Stopping a Job

Click the corresponding More Actions button, and then Stop . The automation project is executed until it finds a Should Stop activity. During this time, the job is in the Stopping state. If the activity is encountered, the execution is stopped, and the job’s final status is Successful . If a Should Stop activity is not found, the job execution does not stop until it reaches the end of the project. The final status, in this case, is Successful as well.

Note

A job started from the Jobs page can be stopped from the Jobs page only.

Killing a Job

Click the corresponding More Actions button, and then Kill . The automation project is forcefully stopped, the job is marked as Stopped , and “Job canceled” is displayed in the Job Details window.
