Business value

This enables a Business Central host to set resource limits in the system, without disrupting users who might need to exceed the limits from time to time.

Feature details

A system administrator can set soft and hard limits on report execution time on the server.

A developer can set a maximum timeout in report metadata.

At runtime, an end user can override the metadata setting.

The soft limits set on the Business Central online server are expected to be six hours for version 17.0, with a goal of one hour.
