Issue:
When a queue is stopped, then modifying the queue's max slots will make the queue active. All jobs within the stopped queue will begin to run again.

Queue is initially stopped, and job is in "waiting" status:

User-added image

Max queue slots are modified to a different number:
User-added image

Now the queue has started and the jobs in the queue are active:

Automation Engine 12.1.2 – Planned release date for May 23rd, 2018
Automation Engine 12.2.0 – Planned release date for June 29th, 2018

Workaround: Modify the queue while it is active.
