Modify the transaction timeout setting of OnCommand Workflow Automation

The OnCommand Workflow Automation (WFA) database transaction times out in 300 seconds by default. You can increase the default timeout duration when restoring a large-sized WFA database from a backup to avoid potential failure of the database restoration.

You must have logged in to the WFA host system as an admin.

The default WFA installation path is used in this procedure. If you changed the default location during installation, you must use the changed WFA installation path.

  1. Open Windows Explorer and navigate to the following directory:


  2. Double-click the ps.cmd file.

    A PowerShell command-line interface (CLI) prompt opens with ONTAP and WFA modules loaded in it.

  3. At the prompt, enter the following:

    Set-WfaConfig -Name TransactionTimeOut -Seconds NumericValue

    Set-WfaConfig -Name TransactionTimeOut -Seconds 1000

  4. When prompted, restart the WFA services.
