Automate - Terminate Running Task

This bot will demonstrate how Automate can terminate a task using the processID. In this bot, Automate will utilize actions like the create dataset, loop, and if actions to prompt the user to choose a task that is currently running and terminate it using the processID.

You can use this bot to:

  • Give the user the opportunity to terminate a task that is currently running.
  • Provide an example of how the create dataset action can be created, edited and added too.

NOTE: The Retrieve Process Information action is set to continue on error on purpose. The dataset will check for total rows (meaning zero tasks are running) and follow the If logic to end the task gracefully.
