Flow run timed out

Hello guys! 

 

Have constructed a flow and ran it but was faced with the warning, "Flow run timed out. Please try again.". Tried running it again numerous times but the warning still appeared. 

 

I suspect this is due to the large data present in my flow (as i tried running the same flow with a smaller data volume and was not faced with such an issue). 

 

Please comment if you have a way around this or a solution to this problem (I cant delete my data set tho!)

 

Thank you!

Hi @vicktan 

 

Can you share a screenshot of the flow? Note that, if you are testing the flow and monitoring the steps by clicking the save and test, the flow run times out after 10 minutes and then if you navigate to the run history you will see the flow run continuing. Also, if it is on a specific action, you can change the action settings by clicking ... and then in settings, configure a static time out. 

 

Hope this Helps!

Hi @yashag2255 

 

Thank you for your reply!

 

Indeed my flow is still running when I look at the flow history. Could I check how do I configure the static time out? I cannot seem to find the "..." as mentioned. 

 

Thank you! 

 

PS: I cant upload my workflow due to the settings made by my organisation. However, my flow looks something like this:

-Recurrance

-Initial variable

-List rows present in table in Excel-Table A

-Apply to each-Table A

          -List rows present in table in Excel- Table B

          -Apply to each-Table B

                        -Condition 1

          -Condition 2

Hi @vicktan 

 

when working with large data sets, flow can take time to process the rows. If you want to add static time out, you can do so in action settings on which the time out needs to be added. Example:

Here, this action waits for 1 day before timeout. P1D is the string input that needs to be passed for 1 day time stamp. 

 

Hope this Helps!
