The <<stop...>> function will stop the Agentry Server’s interactions with the the back end system. Any subsequent steps within the same group of the same parent definition will not be processed. The function takes an optional comment argument, the contents of which will be written as a log message by the server to the log file for the parent step’s back end log category.
As an example of the function’s behavior, if the second of four client exchange steps within a fetch contains a <<stop>> function, that step and those that come after it will not be run. This function will result in a commit being performed, committing any changes made previously by the processing of the previous steps within the same parent.
