Optional. Specify a number in range 0 (no timeout) to 32767.

The number of seconds to allow for a request to complete. If a timeout value is not defined or is set to 0, then no timeout is set for the web service. Network protocol or Gateway daemon timeout settings that are set in the configuration file takes precedence.

This parameter has no effect for web service requests that use an EXCI connection to CICS®. When you use EXCI, you can set the TIMEOUT parameter in the EXCI options table DFHXCOPT.
