What it is the maximum that i can give for timeout in Element exists activity

Hi Guys,

i Have a scenario, where i upload a file into application and it takes one hour to process and give me success message in the UI. For this can i give maximum of “1 hour” timeout in the Element exists activity.

Is there any limitation on maximum value that should be given to timeout property.



As per you case, I suggest to split your process into two

One process will upload the file and schedule the second process after 1 hour
When second process starts it will check whether there is success message or not

Hope this may help you


You wouldn’t want one activity sitting there running constantly for an hour. Use a retry with, say, a 5 minute delay. Then just use regular settings for Element Exists. So every 5 minutes it’ll check to see if there it exists.
