3. DESCRIPTION

cancel cancels existing print jobs. The -a option will remove all jobs from the specified destination.

4. OPTIONS

The following options are recognized by cancel:

  • -E
         
    Forces encryption when connecting to the server.
  • -U username
         
    Specifies the username to use when connecting to the server.
  • -a
         
    Cancel all jobs on the named destination, or all jobs on all destinations if none is provided.

5. COMPATIBILITY

Unlike the System V printing system, CUPS allows printer names to contain any printable character except SPACE, TAB, "/", or "#". Also, printer and class names are not case-sensitive.

6. NOTES

Administrators wishing to prevent unauthorized cancellation of jobs via the -u option should require authentication for Cancel-Jobs operations in cupsd.conf(5).
