Feature details

The Business Central server will have new settings where an administrator can set limits on the execution time for reports and SOAP web service calls. When the limit is reached, the server cancels the operation.

In Business Central online (software as a service), the default values are set by the Business Central operations team and cannot be overridden by customers or partners. In 2020 release wave 1, the default values will be set to hours (actual values are to be determined).

For Business Central (on-premises), an administrator can control the settings in the server.
