    Decisions in process

    lianne.redding Apprentice

      Is there a limit to the number of decisions you can have in a row in process in Service Desk 7.3.2 - i think it used to be 8 pre 7.3.2.  I have 24 and I need to add in 4 more - keep getting timeout errors.  I have tried putting a status, precondition, auto action in and then carry on with decicsions but still get the timeout error

       

      Thanks,

      Lianne.

          I've got 23 in a row.

           

          Your 24 is spookily close to a multiple of 8 so lets hope the max hasn't risen to this ceiling instead.

           

          I thought there was no ceiling now so interested what LANDesk have to say on this one too.

            Same thoughts as me on the 24 being multiple of 8.  Have logged an incident too so will update this post if i get a response through the incident rather than on here

              I generally crank up <add key="WebServiceTimeout" value="120000" /> to be 1200000, but if that doesn't help how about making some of those sequences a calculation that combines things together?

                Thanks Dave - already tried the timeout value.  Also tried doing the design work directly on the web server to cut out some network traffic - still no joy.  The process already has calculations to 'lump' things together - trying to model a new starter process based on a form they already use which has a zillion checkboxes on it and something different needs to happen based on items (or groups of items) being selected.  I may be able to trim it down a bit further by grouping more things together in decisions but it doesn't give as nice a solution, but if there's no alternative then that'll be my next option
