Canceling and deleting Azure Import/Export jobs

To request that a job be canceled before it is in the Packaging state, call the Update Job Properties operation and set the CancelRequested element to true. The job is canceled on a best-effort basis. If drives are in the process of transferring data, data may continue to be transferred even after cancellation has been requested.

A canceled job is moved to the Completed state and is kept for 90 days, at which point it is deleted.

To delete a job, call the Delete Job operation before the job has shipped (that is, while the job is in the Creating state). You can also delete a job when it is in the Completed state. After a job is deleted, its information and status are no longer accessible via the REST API or the Azure portal.
