Canceling Jobs in Security Director

You can cancel jobs that are scheduled for execution as long as they are in the Scheduled, In Progress, or Pending state. You can also cancel jobs that are not completed for a long time or jobs that are hindering the execution of other jobs in the queue

If you are a user who is assigned the privileges of a Job Administrator, you can cancel jobs scheduled by any user. If you are a user who is assigned the privileges of a Job User, you can cancel only those jobs that are scheduled by you. If you are assigned a role that does not allow you to cancel any job, you cannot cancel any job in the Jobs workspace.


  • If Junos Space determines that the job operation cannot be interrupted, the job runs to completion; otherwise, the job is canceled.
  • When you cancel jobs that are in-progress, some tasks associated with the job might be completed, depending on the stage at which you canceled the job. The status of the job on the Job Management page appears as Cancelled.


To cancel one or more jobs:

  1. Select Monitor > Job Management.

    The Job Management page appears.

  2. Select the jobs that you want to cancel. From the right-click or More menu, select Cancel Jobs.

    The Cancel Job page appears, displaying the list of jobs selected for cancelation.

  3. Click Yes to confirm that you want to cancel the selected jobs.

    You are returned to the Job Management and the status of the jobs that were canceled changes to Cancelled.
