This is an old version of the topic. To see the current version, change the (v=exchg.150) value in the URL to (v=exchg.160).

This cmdlet is available only in the cloud-based service.

Use the Stop-HistoricalSearch cmdlet to stop an existing historical search that has a status value of NotStarted.

For information about the parameter sets in the Syntax section below, see Syntax.

Stop-HistoricalSearch -JobId <Guid> [-Organization <OrganizationIdParameter>]

This example stops the historical search that has the JobId value f9c66f83-b5c8-4a0c-91f4-a38376f74182.

Stop-HistoricalSearch -JobId f9c66f83-b5c8-4a0c-91f4-a38376f74182

A historical search provides message trace and report details in a comma-separated value (CSV) file for messages that are between seven and ninety days old.

After you start a historical search by using the Start-HistoricalSearch cmdlet, the search is queued, but not actually running. While the search is queued and has the status value of NotStarted, you can use the Stop-HistoricalSearch cmdlet to stop it. After the search is actively running, and has a status value of InProgress, you can't stop it. When you stop a historical search, it's given a status value of Cancelled.

To see what permissions you need, see the "View Reports" entry in the Feature permissions in Exchange Online topic.
