Number of Retries for JSRemote Call

By | January 16, 2014

In our previous blog post “Transaction aborted: timeout error in Salesforce“, we had written that changing the timeout parameter in JSRemote call from Visualforce page can help avoid the timeout error issue. But occasionally even after increasing the timeout parameter, the timeout error appears for a couple of times due to the fact that sometimes Salesforce takes too long to process the request.

In such a case we can set the parameter called maxretries which defines the number of times the JSremote method should be called; if in case the method fails.

As shown below we have set the maxretries value to 2 –

{buffer: true, escape: true, timeout: 120000 ,maxretries :2}

The other way to do this will be to set this value at the page level as shown below –

<script type=”text/javascript”>

Visualforce.remoting.maxretries = 2; // Set retries at page level
