Synthetic monitor hard timeout from public locations


Currently have a Synthetic monitor that is approximately 140 events. Around event 60 it fails with a Hard Timeout which means it hit the 5 minute execution limit. This synthetic I have running is from public locations. I know with private locations there is an API option to increase this limit to say 15 minutes. How can we increase this limit for public locations as this is an external URL we are monitoring so want to execute from public locations?

It is not possible to increase this limit on public locations. Can you split the scenario up into multiple monitors? Also, I would check the waits that are being used and replace any timed waits for 'Wait for next event' or 'wait for a specified element' as these usually allow the script to move on faster than a timed wait.
