  • Hello chameera7502,

    Based on my knowledge, the executionTimeout attribute is an Int32 number. That means, it can be 2,147,483,647 in theory. However, I consider that it is not useful for you to set the value so large, since this issue is also relative to the client side. The browser may abort the connection after it is waiting for a long time. In addition, if we keep the HTTP runtime as a long time, it will have security risk for the server, such as DDoS attack.

    For more information about this attribute and Int32, please refer to the following web pages.



    Hope it is helpful to you.
