Can't stop workflows that calls sub-workflow in a loop batch

Describe the problem/error/question

I can stop the small job that is called by parent job in a batch loop.
I cannot kill the parent job.
The loop runs 500 times and the small job that runs will stop when I click on stop but the parent job runs the next iteration.

What is the error message (if any)?

Hi @Herman_Tan :wave: Thanks for going into such detail with this one!

I made a quick test workflow and I can also confirm that I’m receiving this error when a loop is used - I’ve let our engineering team know about this, and will report back when I have any updates. Unfortunately I’m not too sure on a workaround for this one in the meantime :see_no_evil:

Any update on status of this bug fix?

Looking at the internal ticket it is still waiting to be picked up.
