Is it possible to increase HTTP connector timeout

Hi,

 

is it possible to increase timeout for HTTP connector in power Automate?

 

my api takes more than 120 seconds to respond and HTTP connector default timeout is 120 seconds only i guess so it fails as you can see in image below. can than be done ?

Hi,

 

You can do this from the setting page for the HTTP action.

- Click the three dots in the top right corner of the HTTP action

- Click 'settings'

- Enter a value in timeout field, using the ISO 8601 Duration format - https://www.digi.com/resources/documentation/digidocs/90001437-13/reference/r_iso_8601_duration_form...

Re: Is it possible to increase HTTP connector timeout

@SamPo- That setting only applies when the HTTP endpoint you are calling implements the async pattern, i.e. the endpoint will return a 202 accepted response, also adding a header property named 'Location' which should then be polled to check the status of the long running job.

@aman_varamaIf your HTTP endpoint exceeds the 120 second limit you should implement the async pattern, just changing the Timeout setting on the action will not work.

Hope this helps

Thank you @SamPo for the response,

 

Thank you @Jay-Encodian, can you please pass on little more information on how that can be implemented and any reference referring to async pattern will be helpful!
