Exiting with Error

Steps to Reproduce

Run the export.

Root Cause

A defect or configuration issue in the operating environment.
Export was run with --requestTimeOut 300 and with export.async=false. Due to the size of the export, the time was insufficient to complete the export before the timeout was reached.


Perform either of the following local-changes:
  • Remove or increase the request_time_out.
  • Switch to Async Processing > Add a step in the middle to check the status using the getStatus option > Wait for the export to complete
  • Export smaller chunks such that the export can complete before the request_time_out set.
