When you are editing or creating a connector-based resource, Identity Manager displays a set of fields known as operation time-outs. By default, Identity Manager sets operation time-outs to a value of -1, which represents no time-out. When you set this field to a non-zero value, the operation times out with an error if the connector does not complete the operation sooner than the specified time-out interval. Identity Manager stores time out values in the Resource XML object under the <OperationTimeouts> tag. Time-outs with a value of -1 are not stored in the XML.
