Service-REST needs timeout and requestor terminated.



The requirement in this case is the Service REST that is handling calls from consumers needs to have a 6-second timeout.

If the Service Activity can not complete in six seconds, it needs to terminate.

The SLAs for the consumers is under two seconds. So, the consumer who initiated the request has already terminated it and is "no longer listening". But, the request is still churning in Pega.

User wants to get these requestors back into the pool.

User requires to know how can this be implemented in Pega? Needs to be synchronous.

The service activity has internal connect calls to other applications, so there might be something that can be done on those steps in the activity. But, is there any configuration that can handle terminating an active.

Steps to Reproduce

1. Configure prconfig.xml with the entries :

<env name="timeout/application" value="6" />
<env name="Initialization/PersistRequestor" value="Never" />

2. Create a REST service in the same node and put a wait in the service activity for 10 seconds.
3. Trigger the service from SOAP UI or any other tool. The application should timeout in 6 seconds, but it does not.
