While executing a flow in Javelin, I am receiving the following error: ORA-01013: user requested cancel of current operation. Is there any property which we can set at Javelin to avoid session timeout before execution?

ORA-01013 is more of an informational error.  This error occurs to let the user know that the operation has been cancelled by one of the following reasons: 

  • A timeout occurred
  • The user pressing CTRL-C or a different method like front-end application
  • A response to congruent errors

The most common cause of ORA-01013 is that a timeout occurred.  You can resolve this by increasing the value in the timeout parameter. 


The CommandTimeOut and the Timeout variable values need to be increased. 
To increase these for the OracleActivity in Javelin, you can do the following:
