I have a Jira (server) automation rule running -- it shows "In Progress". It has been this way for over 24 hours.

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).

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.)
