FUSION: Stop Button Outside of the Scenario

Avatar

Level 2

04-11-2022

Description - Need a way to stop a running scenario from outside of the scenario itself.

 

Why is this feature important to you - If a scenario is running on a schedule and I need it to stop, I have no way of doing so.  If I open the scenario while it is already running, it is hit or miss as to whether or not it will even display a Stop button.  Even if it does display the Stop button, it never works.  I have literally a 0% success rate of that button ever having stopped a scenario under these conditions.  

Additionally, if I have started a Scenario by clicking the Run Once button and the scenario decides to freeze up in my browser (this happens a lot and is becoming more and more frequent), then there is no way to stop it.  I have to wait the full 45 mins for it to time out before I can continue working on it because the stop button won't work after the freeze up and if I refresh the page, I just get a view of the diagram, not the progress of the current cycle and I run into the same situation where it is hit or miss as to whether or not the Stop button will appear and even if it does, it won't actually work.

 

How would you like the feature to work - When viewing the list of scenarios in Fusion, there should be a Stop button for each scenario that is accessible without actually opening the scenario.  Similar to the toggle switch that controls whether it runs on a schedule or not.  If/when it changes to a Force Stop button, that button should truly function as a force stop, literally killing the process running that scenario immediately without regard to anything it is doing at the time.  

 

Current Behaviour - there is no button like I am describing.
