Pausing and Reactivating Pipelines in Elastic Transcoder

If you want to cancel a job, we recommend that you first pause the corresponding pipeline so Elastic Transcoder doesn't start processing the job. After the status of a job changes from Submitted to Progressing, you can't cancel it.

The following procedure explains how to pause and reactivate a pipeline by using the console. For information about how to pause and reactivate a pipeline by using the API, see Update Pipeline Status.

To pause or reactivate a pipeline using the Elastic Transcoder console

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the Elastic Transcoder console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/elastictranscoder/.

  2. In the navigation bar of the Elastic Transcoder console, select the region in which you want to pause or reactivate a pipeline.

  3. In the navigation (left) pane, click Pipelines.

  4. Select the check box next to the pipeline that you want to pause or reactivate.

  5. Click Pause or Activate as applicable.
