Generally Available: Operation Abort in AKS

Published date: April 26, 2023

AKS now supports aborting a long running operation. This feature, now generally available, allows you to take back control and run another operation seamlessly. This design is supported using the Azure REST API or the Azure CLI.

The abort operation supports the following scenarios:

  • If a long running operation is stuck or suspected to be in a bad state or failing, the operation can be aborted provided it's the last running operation on the Managed Cluster or agent pool.
  • If a long running operation is stuck or failing, that operation can be aborted.
  • An operation that was triggered in error can be aborted as long as the operation doesn't reach a terminal state first.
