Hello,

I would like to develop a script using scripting extension that would take 2min to run. Is it possible to schedule this script to run in every 5 min? 

If I schedule using this method there will be a 30 sec runtime limitation?

Thanks.

Hi, yes if you're using automation scripts, there's a 30 seconds runtime limit. Potentially you have to spread across multiple script operations. Scripting extensions can't be scheduled, they always have to be initiated by the user.

Also, you may want to take a look at Make, which has a 40-minute limit per automation.

There is a small learning curve with Make, which is why I created this basic navigation video to help. I also provide the links to a few other Make training resources there as well.

You need a different architecture, but which architecture [exactly] cannot be stated or advised without disclosing more requirements. Drop a note to me (bill.french@gmail.com) if you want more guidance.

Yes, and this is unlikely to ever change. Ergo, you need a different approach.
