cancel-job

Description

The CancelJob operation cancels an unfinished job.

Note

You can only cancel a job that has a status of Submitted . To prevent a pipeline from starting to process a job while you're getting the job identifier, use UpdatePipelineStatus to temporarily pause the pipeline.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

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

Options

--id (string)

The identifier of the job that you want to cancel.

To get a list of the jobs (including their jobId ) that have a status of Submitted , use the ListJobsByStatus API action.

--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. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--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.
