Hi,
I'm looking for a solution to a problem - jobs running longer than normal. Meaning, a scheduled job normally completes in 15 minutes. I need a method (condition) that send out an alert email if the job runs longer than 15 minutes. Can this be done with a condition? How would the config look?

Thank you,

Michael

There is no good built in method for this, but we plan to add it. I am moving this topic to Feature requests.

Why not set the Time Out to the job for 15 Minutes, select the "Consider timeout as error" box and then create a Job Error flow with an Job Failed email notification.

I think he did not want to abort the Task/Job but just alert.
