PureCloud Data Action Timeout

    Would it be possible to extend the Timeout when executing a PureCloud Data Action from a script ? (I noticed that when calling the Data Actions from the IVR, we can change the Timeout)

    Not when you are running your test, but you can in Architect when you run the data action.  There is a checkbox that allows you to override the timer.  The API times out in 10 sections, but in Architect, it can be 60 sections.

    Data action executions are currently set to timeout at 20s through the Public API, and 60s through Architect/call flows.  That said, 20s is an eternity when it comes to a REST API call, and it would be greatly discouraged regularly using a web services that takes that long to return a response.  A better pattern would be to leverage an asynchronous API with a combination of data actions, where the first action requests the work and returns a reference number that can be passed to a second data action that requests the results (the second action can be retried multiple times while the Async process is trying to complete the request).
