How to set an object to HOLD/HELD - Manual stop has been set // How to release an object

Discussion created by Spencer_Cockrell_39 on Dec 18, 2017
Recently we have had a couple of requests asking how to set an object to the following status:

HELD - Manual stop has been set.  // This correlates to the status code 1562.

This status is set via Breakpoints in Workflow objects. These are accessed via the "Earliest" tab under the Workflow's child object properties (Set breakpoint checkbox). Examples:

Java UI:

Once this has been set, the Workflow will continue normally until it reaches this Breakpoint, after which the status of the job will be set to HELD (this may be viewed via the Details selection for the job in question via the Workflow Monitor). 

Java UI:

This status should remain indefinitely until released manually (right click on the Held object -> Modify task -> Go immediately).

Once released, the following message (or similar) may be observed in the Messages window:

U00011563 User 'User/Domain' removed breakpoint of object 'Object.Name'.

If you have another method for finding/setting these statuses, we would love to have your input below!
