Error Message :

A schedule object which is cancelled using the function "cancel recursive" goes into a status of "ENDED_OK" but still activates tasks within it:.

Note: This issue has been seen in Version 12.0.1, 12.0.2 and 12.0.3, however it is not reproducible in 12.1.


It is not recommended to use this function for now until this is fixed.
OS Version: N/A
Cause type:
Root Cause: Schedule objects were not deactivated automatically after cancelling recursive. Schedule is still shown in process monitoring with state ENDED_OK.
Update to a fix version listed below or a newer version if available.

The Solution is either to use Version 12.1 where the issue was not been reproduced, or to wait for a fix which is currenty in progress while using the described workaround until then.

Fix Status: Released

Fix Version(s):
Component(s): AE Server and Initialdata

Automation Engine 12.0.4 - Available
Additional Information:
Workaround :
Use the "Quit" option for the schedule object instead. It works as expected and will result in no further tasks being executed from that schedule object.
