Examples

To cancel the currently running DDL jobs and return whether the corresponding jobs are successfully cancelled, use ADMIN CANCEL DDL JOBS:

ADMIN CANCEL DDL JOBS job_id [, job_id] ...;

If the operation fails to cancel the jobs, specific reasons are displayed.

Note:

  • Only this operation can cancel DDL jobs. All other operations and environment changes (such as machine restart and cluster restart) cannot cancel these jobs.
  • This operation can cancel multiple DDL jobs at the same time. You can get the ID of DDL jobs using the ADMIN SHOW DDL JOBS statement.
  • If the jobs you want to cancel are finished, the cancellation operation fails.
