[OPEN] Allow cancelation of already started background activities



User Story

As a PRTG User, I want to have full control over the activities of PRTG

Details of User Story

Some of the background activities of PRTG can be quiet long-standing

  • creation of certain reports
  • automatic search for sensors
  • ... whatever runs in background being able to cancel the running background activities gives control back to the user. (optional) being able to assign prioties to the background activities would be even better. (not that not necessary, just good to have)

Acceptance criteria

  • being able to cancel report creation
  • being able to cancel background scan
  • being able to cancel other activities
