Request Timeout

I tried to configure the Request timeout setting in the preferences to about 6 mins (7200000ms), but I realized that all my requests get to return server error shortly after 30secs (~30000ms).

Why is this happening?

Hi @conigbinde,

What type of service are you calling? I wasn’t able to reproduce the issue, could it be that you’re getting timed out by the server and not Postman?

Thanks. The service seems to have some issues though. Before I changed the Request timeout setting from zero, the requests keep running, at least that’s what I see on the postman UI till I decide to cancel the request. So, by adding the timeout period, I expected it to wait for that exact moment before returning server error, but while using the collection runner, I realise it barely takes 30 secs before returning the server error.
