New feature: Action timeout setting

New feature: Action timeout setting

October 9, 2019

Until now, the timeout for actions in Buddy was fixed permanently at 90 minutes. This means the action was automatically terminated if it was still in progress after an hour and a half. There were a few exceptions from the rule in which it was possible to set the timeout manually, e.g. HTTP or K8s apply actions . From this week onwards, you can do it in all actions in the system. The feature can be found in the Overview tab:

90 minutes still remain the default and maximum limit that can be set in an action. If you need more time, please contact for a custom plan with increased limits.

The limit doesn't apply to notifications which are executed instantly.
