These are standard URL query parameters; remember to percent-encode [ as %5B and ] as %5D if your tooling doesn't automatically encode URLs.

Parameter Description
q Optional. A search query string. Runs are searchable by ID, workspace name, organization name or email, and VCS repository identifier.
filter[status] Optional. A comma-separated list of Run statuses to restrict results to, which can include any of the following: "pending", "plan_queued", "planning", "planned", "confirmed", "apply_queued", "applying", "applied", "discarded", "errored", "canceled", "cost_estimating", "cost_estimated", "policy_checking", "policy_override", "policy_soft_failed", "policy_checked", and "planned_and_finished".
page[number] Optional. If omitted, the endpoint will return the first page.
page[size] Optional. If omitted, the endpoint will return 20 runs per page.

A VCS repository identifier is a reference to a VCS repository in the format :org/:repo, where :org and :repo refer to the organization (or project) and repository in your VCS provider.

This GET endpoint can optionally return related resources, if requested with the include query parameter. The following resource types are available:

» Force a run into the "cancelled" state

POST /admin/runs/:id/actions/force-cancel

Parameter Description
:id The ID of the run to cancel.

This endpoint forces a run (and its plan/apply, if applicable) into the "canceled" state. This action should only be performed for runs that are stuck and no longer progressing normally, as there is a risk of lost state data if a progressing apply is force-canceled. Healthy runs can be requested for cancellation by end-users.

Status Response Reason
200 JSON API document (type: "runs") Successfully canceled the run.
404 JSON API error object Run not found, or client is not an administrator.

» Request body

This POST endpoint allows an optional JSON object with the following properties as a request payload.

Key path Type Default Description
comment string null An optional explanation for why the run was force-canceled.

» Sample Payload

{
  "comment": "This run was stuck and would never finish."
}
