Stopping a workflow run - Amazon Glue
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).

Stopping a workflow run

You can use the Amazon Glue console, Amazon Command Line Interface (Amazon CLI) or Amazon Glue API to stop a workflow run. When you stop a workflow run, all running jobs and crawlers are immediately terminated, and jobs and crawlers that are not yet started never start. It might take up to a minute for all running jobs and crawlers to stop. The workflow run status goes from Running to Stopping, and when the workflow run is completely stopped, the status goes to Stopped.

After the workflow run is stopped, you can view the run graph to see which jobs and crawlers completed and which never started. You can then determine if you must perform any steps to ensure data integrity. Stopping a workflow run causes no automatic rollback operations to be performed.
