Timeout in SQL sensor



Hello, Is there a possibility to increase timeout to value greater than 5 minutes?

The maximum timeout value for SQL sensor (or rather the "Credentials for Database Management Systems" settings of the parent device) is 300 seconds (5 minutes). I'm afraid it's not possible to use a higher timeout value.

Kind Regards,
