Issue/Introduction

Generating JWT from zowe API mediation layer via z/OSMF failed in timeout.

Below is the error seen in zowe started task log:

What might cause the timeout and is there available parameter to adjust in order to increase timeout value ?

Resolution

To increase the timeout, update zowe.yaml file with these 2 environmental variables.

Their values are in milliseconds, in the sample below 40 seconds are requested.

APIML_HTTPCLIENT_CONN_POOL_REQUESTCONNECTIONTIMEOUT:40000  
APIML_HTTPCLIENT_CONN_POOL_READTIMEOUT:40000

Additional Information

Documentation about how to add these variables(UPPER_CASE format as provided is authorized) can be found on Zowe docs website
