Pause/Resume Automation Process Server Processing

Use the Pause/Resume Processing task (CSM Administrator>Automation Processes) to temporarily pause, and then resume Automation Process Server processing. This does not stop the Automation Process Server (service); rather, it suspends the server so that, when resumed, the server can pick up where it left off. For example, pause processing to suspend sending out automatic e-mails; resume processing to continue sending out automatic e-mails. The ability to pause or resume Automation Server processing is controlled by Automation Process Service security rights.

Good to know:

  • When you pause or resume processing, it could take up to five minutes for the pause or resume operation to take effect. To immediately pause or resume processing, use the Server Manager or Service Monitor to stop the server itself.

To pause or resume Automation Process Server processing:

  1. In the CSM Administrator main window, click the Automation Processes category, and then click the Pause/Resume Processing task.
  2. Select to pause or resume:
    1. Pause Automation Process Server: Select the check box to pause processing. You must provide a reason for pausing processing.
    2. Resume Automation Process Server Processing: Select the check box to resume processing.
  3. Click OK.
