Appflow / Client / cancel_flow_executions



Cancels active runs for a flow.

You can cancel all of the active runs for a flow, or you can cancel specific runs by providing their IDs.

You can cancel a flow run only when the run is in progress. You can’t cancel a run that has already completed or failed. You also can’t cancel a run that’s scheduled to occur but hasn’t started yet. To prevent a scheduled run, you can deactivate the flow with the StopFlow action.

You cannot resume a run after you cancel it.

When you send your request, the status for each run becomes CancelStarted. When the cancellation completes, the status becomes Canceled.


When you cancel a run, you still incur charges for any data that the run already processed before the cancellation. If the run had already written some data to the flow destination, then that data remains in the destination. If you configured the flow to use a batch API (such as the Salesforce Bulk API 2.0), then the run will finish reading or writing its entire batch of data after the cancellation. For these operations, the data processing charges for Amazon AppFlow apply. For the pricing information, see Amazon AppFlow pricing.
