Does the orchest sdk have a method for stopping the pipeline?

Do you mean from within the code of the steps or externally?

@Rick Lamers from within the code of the steps

A simple way would be to raise an exception it would stop all downstream steps (steps that follow it). Or would you like to stop the entire pipeline?

I would like it to just stop the entire pipeline. situation being where under a certain condition, there is no need to continue/run further steps

not that running the other steps would be an issue, just seems nicer

We don’t expose a REST API to operate on entities on the Orchest cluster yet. Eg calling “DELETE pipeline-run”. A REST API is in the works though. If you’re really in need and aren’t afraid of some reverse engineering you can check out the API call that gets made when you cancel a pipeline run in a job (there’s a button for it) and make such a call from your code. Short answer is: no easy way yet to do exactly that atm.

When you raise an exception, no other steps will be executed. It might not sounds like a clean solution, but does exactly what you want. Love the suggestions as well 🙌

It actually stops the entire pipeline (even unconnected components).
