Dataflow | Stop running process

Hi lovely Community,

 

is there a way to stop a running data integration Datflow once it has started? 

Or do we have to wait until it has finished before to start it again?

 

BR,

Sven

Hi @KSven, unfortunately you can't cancel an in-progress dataflow. You'll have to wait until it finishes. You should submit the idea which would be handy particularly for long running dataflows: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Power-Apps-Ideas/idb-p/PowerAppsIdeas

Bonjour Eric!

The ability to cancel dataflows is a must, I also voted for this idea. I have a dataflow that's been running for 27 hours; it usually runs for less than 5 minutes. I read on other posts that dataflows were automatically cancelled after 24 hours. I'm thinking there is maybe a setting to specify the maximum runtime for a dataflow. Do you know if this is indeed the case?

Thanks!

Apologies for late response @CharlesS, don't think there is that can be set from PPAC or Maker portal. Might be worth contact Microsoft via support ticket. They might be able to share the environment/organizational setting and how to update if there's one.

Hi @CharlesS 

Did you ever find a way to limit the dataflow runtime? A set period after which it times out? 

Got the same issue that sometimes, randomly, the dataflow takes 8 hours + whilst normally the flow would only take 2-5 min. 

Hello @lg-power !

 

Well, I did find a way, but not the one I hoped for. I ended up getting the flow cancelled through a support ticket.

 

I also sometimes get dataflows randomly running for very long periods of time. Quite frustrating indeed.

 

For now, I think the best thing to do is to vote on @KSven 's idea here: Dataflow | Manual cancel of Dataflow in progress - Power Platform Community (microsoft.com) . Maybe you have a few buddies at work that agree with you and you can get them to vote as well 😉 

 

Keep 'em flowin' (but not too long)

 

Charles
