PPM Center - Workflow Timeouts

In this scenario:
1. My workflow has the timeout set at 5 days
2. It has been 3 days
3. I update the workflow to timeout after 1 day
Will it timeout? If so, how long before it times out?

Also, I have a token defined and want to use it as the timeout. It is in KCRT_REQUEST_DETAILS. So for the timeout token, do I enter "[REQD.NOT_VISIBLE_TIMEOUT]"?

Thanks,
Scott

The token I enter is "[REQD.P.NOT_VISIBLE_TIMEOUT]".

The WF_TIMEOUT_REAPER_INTERVAL property from server.conf (default 900 seconds) sets the interval for how often timeouts are checked.

When I lower the timeout to something less than what has already been waited, it is NOT timing out.

Do you know how I can get it to timeout in that case?

Re: PPM Center - Workflow Timeouts

I finally figured it out. I run this database update so that it will timeout.

UPDATE kwfl_step_transactions
SET TIMEOUT_DATE = sysdate
WHERE STATUS = 'ELIGIBLE' AND TOP_INSTANCE_SOURCE_ID =
