UiPath Job Status Deletion

Question: Which job status(es) will prevent the deletion of an associated robot?

  •   Running and Pending
  •   Faulted and Pending
  •   Suspended and Stopped
  •   Running Only


If the UiPath job status is running or pending, the associated UiPath Robot cannot be deleted from UiPath Orchestrator. So option A is correct.
