Powershell agent have three different timeouts:


     One for Idle time

     One per command execution

     One per session

Find attached a custom tasks that behaves similar to the OOTB but it allows you to enter any amount of minutes.

Tested with 65 mins and it worked (I set the timeout to 70 mins, and the script slept for 65 mins):

There seems to be an issue with this in 6.5, the task errors with:


ReferenceError: 'PSAgentAPI' is not defined in <eval> at line number 79, selectedContext=<None>

Hi Erich, Can you try 'Execute Native Powershell Command' task instead in UCSD 6.5 ? Thanks, Phani

Hi Phani,


Cant do that, it still has a 60 min timeout.  We have some scripts that can run longer. Thats why we use this one.
