Channels: stop

Stop receiving object change notifications through this channel.

While this method accepts a full channel resource, only the id and resourceId fields are necessary. Other elements of a channel resource are legal but ignored. This allows retaining the results of an objects.watchAll call and passing that result in its entirety to channels.stop. For more, see our guide on Object Change Notifications.
