Increase request timeout for Logic apps
Current request timeout is 120 seconds and is non-editable, please make it editable and allow users to increase it till 10 minutes.
Competing products like Dell Boomi offer a much higher timeout limit of about 10 mins. MS should quickly look into this otherwise they will loose customers.

Please Logic Apps team, look into this as making the architecture of the solutions to overcome this it is a pain.
We need to redesign the solution to work with 202 and location header or webhooks, which at a lot of time does not work because we don't have control from all third party systems we are trying to consume.

Yes! We really need to override the default timeout policy.
I agree with this request.
Sometimes i'm executing Runbooks in Azure Automation with a Logic App and since i'm not in control of the load where i execute my code, 2 min. is not fair as a timeout value.
I would suggest to increase the range to at least 60 minutes or give us an Policy setting so we are able to override the default 2 min. Because it still makes sense to aim for simple and quick requests...

much needed feedback!

Shorter timeout also should be allowed not only larger.

I connect to a number of downstream enterprise system which have 2-4 mins timeout. The Request therefore reaches timeout before these system timeouts have been triggered, orphaning the response to an unknown return state.
Is there an update on looking into this as this is causing us a problem when testing a Logic App directly in isolation due to cold starts causing timeouts as opposed to calling it from a parent Logic App (where the 120 second timeout does not seem to apply).

Some APIs we pull from are large and require longer extraction times than 120-seconds. This causes the request to fail if it exceeds the 120-second threshold. The workaround is fairly involved, as it requires multiple smaller requests spliced back together on the client-side. An alternative would be to use Azure Functions, which has a 30-minute threshold...but the whole point of using Logic Apps is to benefit from the codeless UI. Please consider fixing. Thanks!
