Workflow Action Duration Limit in Seconds? Run duration for the whole flow is 30 days.

Is there a limit on how long an action within a workflow may take? 

 

According to the documentation, https://us.flow.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/limits-and-config/, workflow Run duration is a max of 30 days, but there is no mention of the "Action" duration.  I'm thinking about nightly "ETL" uploading data from a transactional database to the "Data Warehouse", as an example of a multistep of actions which may take 1/2 hour to hours.

Hi @ianroseman,

 

Action should be treated as a single outgoing request (Request Limit), and the limits in Flow is 120 seconds.

The Message size limit is 100 MB, and not all API supports the full 100MB.
