Possible to Pause or Stop Database Agent

Any possibility to temporarily stop or pause a Database Agent?

One use case we have seen with this with is that the password expired on the account we were using for the Database Agent and in order to stop the alerts on the database until the password could be reset we had to delete the database agent configurations.

Is there another option rather than deleting and re-adding the Database Agent configurations?

unfortunately it is not yet possible. The use case definitively makes sense and this is something we have on the road map - it is already too late for 6.5. But maybe we will be able to push this functionality in an upcoming update, if not we will have to wait for the spring release next year.


Thank You Sonja
