confluence jira macro timeout


we use Confluence 5.5, JIRA Macros 5.5.4 and JIRA 6.3.10

In the Confluence configuration we set the timeout values to zero (should be interpreted as an infinite timeout - see

During a comlex search the JIRA macro terminates after 10 sec. with the following error: com.atlassian.confluence.macro.MacroExecutionException: Read timed out

Is there a additional timeout in the "JIRA Macro"? If jes, how can I increase it?

Strange, what happens if you manually set to 180000(3 minutes)?

The idea is to address to address the timeout problem, then we can further check if the zero not using infinite is is some kind of BUG.

Hi Deividi, Thanks for the reply. I already tried with 20000 ( 20 sec.) The timeout occured after 10 sec. - strange isn't it? Regards, Uli

Yeap, in that case I would advise you to raise a case to our JIRA support team at, since we would need to check logs to further understand what is happening.

OK, we have raised a support case. Thanks for your help. I mark this question as answered. Regards, Uli

Hi Ulrich, how long does it take for this request to return for you: <JIRAbaseURL>/rest/api/2/issue/createmeta?projects.issuetypes? I'm looking into the same problem for another customer, so please feel to let me know your Support ticket reference and I'll give it a review for you. Cheers, Lachlan

Hi Lachlan the support ticket ref. is CSP-139374 Cheers, Uli

Hi Ulrich, please try the workaround in and let me know if this helps smile

Hi Lachlan, thanks for the information. I think this will be practicable workaround for us. We will test ist and I come back when we have some results. Cheers, Uli

Hi Uli, just a heads up that this workaround may still fail if the call to the projects endpoint in JIRA takes more than 10 seconds, as it appears there is a separate default time out in use. I'm still investigating if/how this can be overridden, and will update the bug report when I know more.

Hi Uli, here's a second bug that might be causing the issue:
