Increase Fingerprint Timeout

Audience: Data Users and System Administrators

Content Summary: This page shows how to increase the timeout settings for the Immuta Fingerprint Service.

Service Overview

There are times where the size of a table can cause the fingerprint service to repeatedly fail. The lack of a valid fingerprint on a data source results in the data source showing as Not Healthy in the UI, creating an inability to apply advanced privacy enhancing techniques such as k-anon and randomized response. This page shows where and how to increase timeout settings for the fingerprint service in Immuta.


  1. As a user with the APPLICATION_ADMIN permission in Immuta, navigate to the App Settings Page.

  2. Scroll to Advanced Configuration.

  3. Enter the following to increase the timeout threshold for the fingerprint service: Note: Configuration entries in the Advanced Configuration MUST adhere to YAML syntax.

    Read more here for YAML syntax details. Check your YAML syntax here.

        worker_timeout: 1200

    Note: Timeout is set in seconds. The above example is a 20 min timeout.

  4. Click the Save button to restart the appropriate Immuta Services.
