Overriding WebSocket response timeout value

By default, the timeout value for WebSocket responses is 240 seconds at the test level. This value might be insufficient or in excess for different applications. You can customize the timeout value for specific responses.


  1. In the Test Navigator view, browse to the test and double-click it. The test opens.
  2. Under Test Contents, select the request on which to enable client processing delays.
  3. Under WebSocket Response Details, click the Advanced tab.
  4. Under Timeout, select Timeout activated and specify the timeout delay. You can specify a numeric value for the timeout delay or use a dynamic value from data sources such as dataset, variables, and data correlation.
