How to clear all active publish jobs

I wrote a web services script to publish all pages related to a template. The publish queue displays these jobs as individual pages (rather than one job) and I recently published a template with 3,000 pages. In the future, is there a way to delete the Active Jobs in the queue without clicking on each "X" button?

    Hi Erik,

    There isn't a way to do this through the interface at this time. Please be sure to vote/comment on this related idea when you have the chance.

    In the meantime, if you would really like to clear all jobs from the publish queue, you can execute the following queries in order:

    delete from cxml_publishrequest_dest;
    delete from cxml_publishrequest_config;
    update cxml_publishrequest set prevId = null, nextid = null;
    delete from cxml_publishrequest;
    Hope this helps!

    Let me know if you have any further questions.
