Timeout in Flow

I've created a Flow that provisions a Sharepoint site in an Azure function; however I'm hitting the timeout when I call the Http action. I know the Flow timeout is 120 sec, but what's the point of the timeout setting of the HTTP action ? I've set it to  PT5M (5 minutes in ISO 8601); does that really work ?

Hi sergeluca,

 

How is the Swagger file configured? Please make sure the Swagger file support HTTP scheme by default. If you don’t use any scheme in Swagger file, then Microsoft Flow will use HTTPs by default.

 

Then you will get the timeout error.

 

Also, there is a limitation that Request Timeout is set with 120 seconds as you mentioned in the post. More details see here:

Hi Team,

I created a MS Flow with Webhook in it such that it waits for a long running process to be completed which then invokes the call back url genrated by the Webhook so taht the MS Flow can continue from where it was stopped or went to wait.

But here my WebHook action step in MS flow itself is getting timed out after 11 Mins.
I tried to put the tieout parameter int he settings but still no use it(i.e. The Webhook actions tep) gets timed out after 11mins?


Can you pelase help  me to resolve this issue? Please let me know if you want addtional details from my end.

Thanks in Advnace
