Changing Service Request Timeout Value

This section describes the way to change the default timeOut value in the Map Uploader.

The map uploader sends multiple service requests to the Spectrum™ Technology Platform server. In some rare cases, the response takes longer than the default time the uploader waits. This can result in the uploader failing to find tables or other resources. To fix this, you can increase the time by editing the default value in the mapuploader.config file. This file resides in the MapInfo\Map Uploader folder under the user’s AppData folder.

To change the default timeout setting:
  1. Type %appdata%\MapInfo\Map Uploader in the Windows explorer.
  2. Open the mapuploader.config file in a text editor.
  3. Search for requestTimeout. The default timeout value for Map Uploader is 150 seconds. The setting looks like:
    <!--Value represents request timeout in seconds--> 
    <setting name="requestTimeout" serializeAs="String">
  4. Change the value and save to change the number of seconds.
