Allow a request timeout of more then 3.8 minutes

Currently the infrastructure imposes a request timeout of 3.8 minutes. This is rather low for longer lasting requests such as for making reports.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the bringing up this idea. Unfortunately this is a default in App Service. You could look at async methods to run additional reports. WebJobs or Azure Functions is another option.

    Thanks,
    Oded

        It may be the default, and it may be undesirable in general to have an operation that lasts more than 3.8 minutes, but for many situations, having a long-running operation is inevitable and having the flexibility to extend the timeout is incredibly desirable. Oh, and locking the vote button so us customers can show you how much we want this feature, (and how wrong you are for making it non-configurable) is very unprofessional.
