It's the most wonderful time of the year - Santalytics 2020 is here! This year, Santa's workshop needs the help of the Alteryx Community to help get back on track, so head over to the Group Hub for all the info to get started!
Say you have an App or a Workflow that seems to be taking a long time to run and you just want to stop it rather than letting it run its course. Here is how you can manually stop the process.
First a connection to the Controller will have to be made in Alteryx Designer under Options—Schedule Workflow or View Schedules. Once connected, under the Options—View Schedules—Queue tab, a list of workflows running on the Gallery or Scheduler are listed.
Find the correct job. A job that is running on the Gallery will have a long alphanumeric string under the Scheduled by filed. If you see something that looks like a Windows UserID (the non-highlighted job below) that is a job that is running from the Alteryx Scheduler, this is not the one you want.
Highlight it and click on the Cancel Job (the minus symbol in a circle) button.
Once 'Cancel Job' is clicked a warning will pop up.
Click 'Yes' to confirm the cancelation of the job.
The Canceled job will then appear in the Results tab.
That is how a long running job can be canceled in a Private Gallery.
