SYNOPSIS

cancel [ -E ] [ -U username ] [ -a ] [ -h hostname[:port] ] [ -u username ] [ id ] [ destination ] [ destination-id ]

DESCRIPTION

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

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.
-h hostname[:port]
  Chooses an alternate server.
-u username
  Cancels jobs owned by username.

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.

NOTES

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