How to increase the default timeout duration for ATF tests



ATF tests will fail if the maximum timeout duration is exceeded. For failures like this, you will see a message similar to the following:
"The test timed out because the max execution time (600 seconds) was reached while executing step 2 - 4"

The default value of 600 seconds can be increased by increasing the value of the sn_atf.batch.timeout system property.


  1. Go to the System Properties > All Properties module
  2. Click the New button to create a new property
  3. Set the values as follows:
    • Name: sn_atf.batch.timeout
    • Type: integer
    • Value: Some value greater than 600
  4. Save the record
