Is there a way to get a notification if a workbench job is taking more time than the set time limit?



We faced an issue in one of our workbench jobs. The job is scheduled to run every 5 min and if it fails, a notification is sent on my mail.

But, in case there is an issue with workbench, and job enters into a state of non-termination i.e. runs continuously but never completes nor does fetching any data and neither generates any error. I do not get any failure notification and never know if there is an issue.

Is there any way to get a notification if a job is taking more time than the set time limit, so that I can terminate it manually?



Can we terminate the a particular job on workbench which is in a non-responsive state without stopping the workbench service?

    Under each Dataset, there is an option to have it terminated after a certain amount of time. 


    Expand the Dataset

    Click 'Settings'

    In the bottom container 'Additional Settings' there is a checkbox for 'Terminate long running DataSet jobs after:'


    The only options are 1, 2, 4, 8, 12, and 24 hours. (any other options would be an enhancement request)


    I'm not sure if that counts as a fail - somebody else may know or you might be able to try it out. I would think if it kills the job, it would become a fail and you would get a notification. 


    I haven't had your case happen - just know of that option ? Hope that helps partially get you there.

    Hi ,


    This information is useful, but my jobs execution time is 1 minutes and the solution which you mentioned is useful only when your jobs execution time is greater than an hour. Is there any other method through which I can get a notification if my job exceeds 1 minutes?


    Also, if I am facing the same issue then I am not able to run my job manually because it is showing an error message ’your query is already in queue’. To run the job in such a case I have to stop the workbench from task manager which is really not convenient. Is there any other way to stop it?
