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.
