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