  3. Select New

  6. Select Extraction object: XYZ
  7. Choose to Save
  8. Select Activate and Run
  9. While the Run is still in process without an Extraction Status, you select the Run and select the button Change Status and choose Set to Obsolete
  10. System throws the mentioned error


While the Data Extraction Run is scheduled to run and is in progress, you are trying to interrupt the Run.


Once you Activate and Run the Data Extraction for any object, if the Data Extraction is still in progress, you would not be able to interrupt the Run or set the status of the Run to Obsolete.

If the Run has completed with the Extraction Status as Finished, you would be able to set the status of the Run to Obsolete.
