    Job Timeout

    Introduction

    GoCD can be configured to automatically cancel jobs that do not generate any console output for a period of time. Default Job timeout options include:

    • Never : Jobs will never be timed out by default. You can override this behavior when configuring the job in the job editor
    • Timeout after a period of inactivity : A job will be cancelled if it did not have any console output for a period of time (in minutes)

    When a job is timed out, the onCancel task for the job will be triggered.

    Note: GoCD will use this property and cancel jobs that are in Building state only.
