Cancelling Workflow Executions

It is possible to cancel an execution whose status is pending, started or queued.

There are three types of execution cancellations:

Using kill cancellation means that workflow and operation processes might not have any opportunity to clean up or release resources.

<div class="panel-heading">Warning</div>
<div class="panel-body">

When the execution’s status changes to cancelled, it means the workflow execution has completed, meaning no new tasks will be started; However, tasks that have already been started might still be executing on agents. This is true for both Standard and Forced cancellations (but not for kill cancellations).

To use force or kill cancellation instead, simply add the force or kill flags. For a syntax reference, see the CLI commands reference.
