Stop an A/B test

Marks the A/B test as stopped. At this point, the test is over and cannot be restarted. Additionally, your application is back to normal: index A will perform as usual, receiving 100% of all search requests.

Note that stopping is different from deleting: When you stop a test, all associated metadata and metrics are stored and remain accessible.
