Complete Example

Suppose another running workflow is to be terminated; we can create a workflow with the workflow IDs to be terminated.

A sample workflow may look like this:

"name": "terminate_workflow",
"description": "Edit or extend this sample workflow. Set the workflow name to get started",
"version": 1,
"tasks": [
"name": "terminate_hello_world",
"taskReferenceName": "terminate_hello_world",
"inputParameters": {
"workflowId": "a8776d48-7ec9-11ee-8f81-26c6bd51258d"
"ownerEmail": ""

If we run this workflow, the workflow with the mentioned workflowId gets terminated, and we can get the terminatedWorkflowIds from the execution page.

Terminate Workflow - Successful execution

We can copy and paste this ID into the workflow execution URL to view the terminated workflow.
