Terminating the synchronization job

You can terminate a synchronization job if the migration process is stuck or is taking excessively long. The synchronization process might take several hours depending on the number of articles that must be migrated and their attributes. You might conclude that the process is stuck but as long as the system pushes messages to the log file, the synchronization job is running, and there is no need to terminate it.

Before you begin

To terminate the synchronization job

  1. Log in to BMC Helix Innovation Studio.
  2. On the Workspace tab, select Knowledge Sync > Records.
  3. On the Records tab, select Migration Jobs and click Edit data.

  4. On the Data Editor (Migration Jobs) page, open the record for the running synchronization job that you want to terminate. 
  5. On the Edit Record page, set the JobStatus field to Failed, and then click Save.
  6. On the Workspace tab, select Knowledge Sync > Processes.
  7. On the Processes tab, click Manage Processes.
  8. From the list of processes, select Terminate job, and then click Run.
    The following image shows the Terminate job page:

  9. On the Terminate job page, click Run.
    A pop-up displays message that the termination action was received in the back-end. 
  10. Go back to Administration
  11. Select Knowledge Management > Knowledge Sync
  12. Wait for the status of the running migration job to be changed from Running to Completed with errors.

The synchronization job is now terminated. The system generates logs about the termination process.
