Change default timeout on trigger

Hello all,

is there a way to change default timeout from 1440 to a different value?

I know that it can be done manually, by selecting a task and changing the value, but I want to set different value to be default for all new tasks?

Best regards

Which timeout where? Session timeout, document timeout, object timeout?

Good afternoon. I need something to default this value was 120 minutes. this is Due to the fact that QMC is divided into zones, and in each zone there is a list of people who creates and runs the Task, without changing this parameter. Task is usually performed within 2 minutes, in case of an error it will hang for 1440 minutes.

Hello,

You should be able to set the global task timeout to a value of your choosing in the %ProgramFiles%\QlikView\DistributionService\QVDistributionService.exe.config file. Try the following:

  1. On the server running the QlikView Distribution Service (QDS), stop QDS
  2. In Windows File Explorer, navigate to %ProgramFiles%\QlikView\DistributionService and open the QVDistributionService.exe.config file for editing
  3. Search for <add key="AbsoluteMaximumMinutesBeforeTaskTimeout" value="1440"/>
  4. If this key is present, set the key to the desired value.
  5. If this key is not present, enter the key under the <!-- ************ QlikView Engine and Distribution Settings ************ --> portion of the file, and set the key to the desired value.
  6. Restart QDS


Hope this helps,

Chip

Good afternoon.

Sorry for the delay in answering.

This setting gave no results.

Stopped the service, added option launched service, the result is in the screenshot.

The directory may need to brush?

Chip Matejowsky, good afternoon. Check out the correctly added line in my screenshot? Anything else you need to do?

Hey, if this global setting in the QVDistributionService.exe.config isn't working for you, suggest you contact Qlik Support for further assistance.
