KB0012085: Cancelling your Print Job

Click here to expand the deprecated HOWTO page

These steps will show you how to remove a print job using the Cups Web Interface. Faculty members have the ability to cancel all jobs, Proctors can cancel all Lab jobs, and Users can cancel their own jobs. I am using the Google Chrome browser for this example, but this can be done in other browsers as well.

Opening up the Cups Web Interface

The Cups Server will prompt you for your CCIS username and password. This will check your group and determine whether or not you have the rights to cancel the job.

Job has been Cancelled

If the server has determined that you have the rights to cancel the job, it will confirm the cancellation.
