Web Activity timeout property RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi all!

    I've seen interest in the Azure Data Factory documentation feedback regarding default Web Activity timeout.  As of now, the default timeout is 1 minute, and it cannot be changed. 

    What has been the experience out there with this feature?  Should the timeout value be configurable?  Does a longer timeout make sense for this feature?

    Here is a link to the documentation for context:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/data-factory/control-flow-web-activity

    Thanks so much for the interest, everyone!

  • Hi Jason, I have been exposed to this issue using the WebActivity, my opinion in this should be a configurable setting (within reason).

    In my example (and Im sure Im not the only one here), external systems are very important in data workflow, sadly, these systems cannot be optimised and we are stuck waiting for them to complete before continuing with the pipelines.

    Making this field configurable would at least allow us to wait longer and not having consistent failures in the pipeline which are not actually failures.

    This is the exact same issue we have. Constant failures because the external system takes longer than one minute to excecute. Setting the timeout to 90 seconds instead of 60 seconds would solve this elegantly.

  • Please make this configurable. I'd like to call a API to pre-process my scripts before execution, but it may not always finish in time.

    I may just have to create a until activity to keep asking for its state as a work around. Not very ideal...
