I have a Jira (server) automation rule running -- it shows "In Progress". It has been this way for over 24 hours.
I think this is because I inadvertently created a branch action that applied to ALL issues, instead of a more limited JQL list.
How do I cancel this job before it finishes? (And, this might not be a big deal for this one, but the answer to this question will help me now AND in the future.)
Hi @Mark Wager
Are you asking about an Automation for Jira (A4J) rule, with a branch? If so, branches can only process up to 100 issues (with or without JQL).
And, at a project level I haven't seen anything for halting a rule in progress. If you disable the rule does it have any impact? (I would suspect not because the engine queues and runs these asynchronously.)
Hi @Bill Sheboy
Yes. Just a typical branch rule. It does seem odd that it isn't finished running. (I had forgotten that it only processess 100 issues.)
I did disable the rule, but as you suspected it doesn't affect the past instances of the rule. I can run the rule again (with my components changed to avoid the same issue) and they run fine. But, the original rule is still "In Progress".
This is a "Global" rule. I'm not sure how global are different from project level except for scope, but I thought I should mention it.
