I’ve noticed that the active switch associated with Tasks created through the Flux2.0 management GUI doesn’t appear to work. For example, when I schedule a cron-based task. When I deactivate the task using the active switch, the task still executes.
Is this a bug, or am I misunderstanding what the active switch refers to?
I suspect this was caused by [bug]: Saving an inactive task activates it without toggling it to active state [backport 2.0] · Issue #22240 · influxdata/influxdb · GitHub, the fix for which will be included in the 2.0.9 OSS release. Prior to this fix, updating a task would cause it to be schedule to run even if it’s status was inactive. I have confirmed using the latest development version that toggling a task off via the UI does indeed stop its execution.
