Kill a workflow wait block

this can be accomplished by a UI action (button) on the wf_executing table

this can either be
server side code:

var url= /' + current.sys_id + '&sysparm_list_mode=grid';
action.setRedirectURL (url);

or client side code:
tick the client box
in the onclick box, enter: go_to_trigger();
in the script box enter:

function go_to_trigger(){
    var grT=new GlideRecord('sys_trigger');
     grT.addQuery('nameLIKE' + g_form.getUniqueValue() );
     if ({
          var url=new GlideURL('/');
          alert('redirecting to sys_trigger entry');
            url.addParam('sys_id', grT.sys_id);
 , '_blank');


note: you may need to enable popups in the browser for the client option

simply navigate to the sys_trigger, and update the 'next action' date field to 30 seconds from now, and job done! watch the workflow free itself up

GlideRecord setValue

setValue(String name, Object value) Sets the specified field to the specified value. Normally a script would do a direct assignment, for example,  gr.category = value . However, if in a script the element name is a variable, then  gr.setValue(elementName, value)  can be used. When setting a value, ensure the data type of the field matches the data type of the value you enter. This method cannot be used on journal fields. If the value parameter is null, the record is not updated, and an error is not thrown!/api_doc?v=madrid&id=r_GlideRecord-setValue_String_Object
