How to increase session timeout on REST API calls

We want to increase the session timeout on API calls, specifically on create/update leads REST API call http://developers.marketo.com/documentation/rest/createupdate-leads/.

What is the best practice for setting the session timeout, and how do you accomplish this? 90 seconds is default timeout.

Hi Jake,

This is a hard coded timeout and cannot be increased, but you might try using asyncProcessing as a workaround

Why are you trying to change the timeout?

On occasion, we receive "SocketTimeoutException: Read timed out" error when our upsertLeads request takes longer than the session timeout. Right now we do not set asyncProcessing param on these calls.

Important clarification:

We have a timeout on our calls and it is not enough for upsertLeads. Is there a recommended timeout you recommend from the client side? Our rest client issues the upsertLeads and it will time out if it doesn’t see a response in the specified timeout (our default is 60 seconds). We can override client-side timeout for all Marketo calls if you think it might be helpful in this case -- perhaps to 90 seconds?

The server-side timeout for syncLead is 90 seconds, so that would leave you in better shape.  If you still have issues with timeouts then, you'll want to reduce your batch size.

Ok - we will look into both options. Thanks Kenny
