Pausing plan executions

Pause your plan executions, for example when fixing an issue for a failed plan or during a maintenance period, to make sure no executions will happen during these events.

Note that a paused task or plan on Cloud Engines neither starts Cloud Engine nor consumes tokens.

Before you begin

  • You must have the appropriate permissions for the environment and workspace where the plan is located.
  • You must have Execute permission to pause plan executions.
