[ aws . batch ]



Cancels a job in an AWS Batch job queue. Jobs that are in the SUBMITTED , PENDING , or RUNNABLE state are cancelled. Jobs that have progressed to STARTING or RUNNING are not cancelled (but the API operation still succeeds, even if no job is cancelled); these jobs must be terminated with the terminate-job operation.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--job-id <value>
--reason <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--job-id (string)

The AWS Batch job ID of the job to cancel.

--reason (string)

A message to attach to the job that explains the reason for canceling it. This message is returned by future describe-jobs operations on the job. This message is also recorded in the AWS Batch activity logs.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.
