If I have the id of a job, is there any way to stop it while it's running?

You'd have to kill the worker processing the job.

Thanks -- after I asked my question I realized I can use locked_at and locked_by to do this.

So is there a recommend signal I should send to the worker? And will the 'error' or 'failure' hooks be invoked on the job before the worker quits?

Thanks!

In some instances, I have added a column to the delayed job table that the worker occasionally checks, and if the flag is set to cancel, it just stops what it is doing and then completes the task cleanly so you don't have to worry about bringing another worker back online.

Just wondering if anyone has figured out how to do this?
