  • Refer to the suggestion mentioned in the GitHub #985.
    Sometimes following settings may cause this scenario:

    • WEBJOBS_IDLE_TIMEOUT - Time in seconds after which we'll abort a running triggered job's process if it's in idle, has no cpu time or output. The default value is 2 minutes.
    • SCM_COMMAND_IDLE_TIMEOUT - By default, when your build process launches some command, it's allowed to run for up to 60 seconds without producing any output.

    According to your description, please try to increase "SCM_COMMAND_IDLE_TIMEOUT" and "WEBJOBS_IDLE_TIMEOUT" settings for your WebJob and find out whether it could work on your side and the Azure side.

    You could add the following settings in the appSettings section of the app.config file in your WebJob project.


        <add key="SCM_COMMAND_IDLE_TIMEOUT" value="3600" /> <!--1 hour-->

        <add key="WEBJOBS_IDLE_TIMEOUT" value="3600" /> <!--1 hour-->



    You could log in to Azure Portal, choose the web app which hosts your WebJob, click SETTINGS > Application settings, add the settings as the above in the App settings section.

    Additional information: Please see this article https://azure.microsoft.com...
