How do I set the request timeout for one controller action in an asp.net mvc application

[From]: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/579523/how-do-i-set-the-request-timeout-for-one-controller-action-in-an-asp-net-mvc-app

I want to increase the request timeout for a specific controller action in my application. I know I can do it in the web.config for the entire application, but I’d rather change it on just this one action.

Web.config example:

<system.web>
  <httpRuntime executionTimeout="1000" />
</system.web>

How do I do it? Thanks,

Kyle

You can set this programmatically in the controller:-

HttpContext.Server.ScriptTimeout = 300;

Sets the timeout to 5 minutes instead of the default 110 seconds (what an odd default?)

<location path="ControllerName/ActionName">
  <system.web>
    <httpRuntime executionTimeout="1000"/>
  </system.web>
</location>

Probably it is better to set such values in web.config instead of controller. Hardcoding of configurable options is considered harmful.
