Note:
Cockroach Labs supports the current stable release and two releases prior. Therefore, this version will no longer be supported after the Spring 2019 release.

New in v1.1: The CANCEL JOB statement lets you stop long-running jobs, which include enterprise BACKUP and RESTORE tasks.

Limitations

  • This feature currently only works with enterprise features. However, in the future, we plan to let you cancel any job, including schema changes.
  • When an enterprise RESTORE is canceled, partially restored data is properly cleaned up. This can have a minor, temporary impact on cluster performance.

Required Privileges

By default, only the root user can cancel a job.

Synopsis

Parameter Description
job_id The ID of the job you want to cancel, which can be found with SHOW JOBS.
