removing oracle datapump job

you may run into situations where you need to stop an expdp or impdp job from running. killing the datapump process from the Operating System level won’t stop the job , infact if you use the below query you may still see it in “RUNNING” state.

SQL> select * from dba_datapump_jobs;

SOOOOOO you need to kill the datapump job from database-level as follows:

$ORACLE_HOME/bin/expdp “‘/as sysdba'” attach=SYS.”‘EXPORT_TABLE_NAME‘”

Export> KILL_JOB

Are you sure you wish to stop this job ([yes]/no): yes

Check it again :

select job_name,owner_name,state from dba_datapump_jobs;

Remark: EXPORT_TABLE_NAME is the table name resulted in the query unser SYS account.
