GitHub Actions import solution workflow timeout


I'm trying to set up automation for solution import/export using this tutorial for GitHub Actions  However, the import-solution step is timing out after 2 mins, so the convert-to-managed job doesn't complete.

The actual import does complete successfully. The unmanaged solution is deployed from my Dev environment to Build environment. But the rest of the workflow is skipped.


Error: The request channel timed out while waiting for a reply after 00:01:59.9980004. Increase the timeout value passed to the call to Request or increase the SendTimeout value on the Binding. The time allotted to this operation may have been a portion of a longer timeout.


This error seems common and I've seen three solutions discussed but I'm not sure how to implement them.

1) Add a 30 minute timeout value for the job. I tried this - no change.

runs-on: windows-latest
timeout-minutes: 30


2) Check max-async-wait-time in the import-solution. Default is 60mins, so should be fine. But how can I enable run asynchronously? Default seems to be false.


3) The error message says to change the SendTimeout value on the binding. If that's worth doing, where can I find that?


Thanks in advance for any assistance.
