The PAUSE JOB statement lets you pause IMPORT jobs, enterprise BACKUP and RESTORE jobs, user-created table statistics jobs, automatic table statistics jobs, and changefeeds.

After pausing jobs, you can resume them with RESUME JOB.

Note:
You cannot pause schema changes.

Required privileges

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

Synopsis

PAUSE JOB job_id JOBS select_stmt

Parameters

Parameter Description
job_id The ID of the job you want to pause, which can be found with SHOW JOBS.
select_stmt A selection query that returns job_id(s) to pause.

Examples

Pause a single job

copy
icon/buttons/copy
> SHOW JOBS;
+----------------+---------+-------------------------------------------+...
|       id       |  type   |               description                 |...
+----------------+---------+-------------------------------------------+...
| 27536791415282 | RESTORE | RESTORE db.* FROM 'azure://backup/db/tbl' |...
+----------------+---------+-------------------------------------------+...
copy
icon/buttons/copy
> PAUSE JOB 27536791415282;

Pause multiple jobs

To pause multiple jobs, nest a SELECT clause that retrieves job_id(s) inside the PAUSE JOBS statement:

copy
icon/buttons/copy
> PAUSE JOBS (SELECT job_id FROM [SHOW JOBS]
      WHERE user_name = 'maxroach');

All jobs created by maxroach will be paused.

Pause automatic table statistics jobs

copy
icon/buttons/copy
> SHOW AUTOMATIC JOBS;
        job_id       |       job_type      |                    description                      |...
+--------------------+---------------------+-----------------------------------------------------+...
  438235476849557505 | AUTO CREATE STATS   | Table statistics refresh for defaultdb.public.users |...
(1 row)
copy
icon/buttons/copy
> PAUSE JOB 438235476849557505;

To permanently disable automatic table statistics jobs, disable the sql.stats.automatic_collection.enabled cluster setting:

copy
icon/buttons/copy
> SET CLUSTER SETTING sql.stats.automatic_collection.enabled = false;
