Server timeout limit - please apply to manual runs too.

Hi there,

 

On the server product you have the ability to set up timeouts to avoid server resources being hogged by any one canvas.

Currently this setting only applies to scheduled canvasses - however this leaves a gap where users can just run this manually.

 

Please can you extend this setting to also cover manually initiated jobs too?

I am sure an admin can move it though!

This shouldn't need to be an idea.  It sounds more like a defect.

Hi @raychase 

 

This is expected behaviour and not a defect.

 

It is listed in our help page:

If you believe the behaviour should be different it would be an idea and then a feature request coming back.

 

I am with you though, I think it should apply across all jobs, or ideally a setting for each, one for scheduled and another for manual.

Fair point @JoeS - I did mean to log this in the server ideas area, but clearly put it in the wrong board.

It was only said in jest 😁

 

As above though, I do think we need a setting to cover ad-hoc jobs.

This would be a good feature to include and number of ideas have been posted on this topic so clearly there is a demand.

Hi Guys,

 

We also have the same requirement like all the manual jobs running on server should be auto cancel if they exceed particular time frame.

 

As I can see this idea already has been approved state so Is there any update ? Is it already implemented or on which Alteryx server version this functionality will be going to be enabled ?.

 

Regards,

Gaurav
