  2. Log on.
  3. Select AR System Administration > AR System Archive Manager Console.

Stopping an archive run after it has started

If you need to stop the archive run after it has started, there are a couple of ways to do that, depending on the type of archiving run you need to stop:

  • Scheduled, full archive run—To stop an entire, scheduled archive run in mid-process, from the AR System Archive Manager console, turn archiving off
  • Individual archiving policy—To stop an individual archiving policy in mid-process when it is part of a scheduled archiving run, disable the policy in the AR System Archive Manager console. When you disable an individual policy that is part of a regular archiving run, the archiving run skips the remainder of the qualified records covered by the disabled policy and moves on to the next archive policy.
  • On-demand archive—To stop an on-demand archivedisable the applicable policy in the AR System Archive Manager console. 

    Note

    When you turn off archiving or disable an archiving policy as mentioned here, the archiving process finishes archiving the record currently being processed and then either stops or moves on to the next archiving policy. All of the records that the archiving run processed before you disabled it remain committed to the Archive form.
