Hi. Is there a way to pause a job (say because an external device needs input) and then unpause the job so it can continue? The hope would be to provide a signal so that the user at the web UI knows.

hi @Leigh Stoller! the closest approximation I think you could get would be to explicitly log some sort of event (i.e.
<http://context.log.info|context.log.info>("waiting for external device input")
) then manually sleeping within the body of the op. but there's no specific alerting mechanism in the UI beyond just the logs that are produced from each step
