Pausing and Reactivating Queues in AWS Elemental MediaConvert

If you want to cancel a job, we recommend that you first pause the corresponding queue so that AWS Elemental MediaConvert 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 queue by using the console.

To pause or reactivate a queue

  1. Open the AWS Elemental MediaConvert console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/mediaconvert.

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Queues.

  3. Select the check box next to the queue that you want to pause or reactivate.

  4. Choose Pause or Activate as applicable.
