Project Server 2013 custom workflow makes multiple api calls RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a project server 2013 custom workflow which comprise 8 stages. As 2013 does not support code behind, I developed a custom service application which is accessed by workflow through REST calls. The problem is workflow calls the REST service more than one time for a project within a minute. I know the issue is because of TIMEOUT, since the first call doesn't return the expected value, 'Retry on Connection Failure' property from workflow retries it and makes multiple calls.

    Infrastructure is as below:
    WFE : 4 servers
    App : 4 servers (1 is CA)
    SQL : 4 servers (includes cluster and nodes)
    Workflow manager 1.0 is installed in APP CA server.

    Can you help me in this case so that multiple api calls can be avoided. If i need to increase the timeout, out of 8 servers where do i add it exactly. Or is there any other solution for this.
