Cancelling shouldn't care whether job is scheduled or running.

Client on 6.2.12 has the issue similar to OP, but on a larger scale (2430 remote execution jobs that need to be canceled). The jobs are not all the same types of jobs, unfortunately.

It would be excellent if users could check a box next to a remote execution job and be able to cancel the task, as well as a 'select all' ability.

Comment 5 pm-sat@redhat.com 2018-03-01 11:22:48 UTC
Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite 6 since the upstream issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/20496 has been resolved.
