How to create longer running timer tasks?

We’ve just started using Backendless and it seems like a powerful tool. One thing we haven’t really seen is how to run a cron/timer process that is several minutes long. Is this possible?

We have a weekly reporting email that calls the OpenAI API to customize the report. Because of the amount of data analyzed and the response time from OpenAI, this weekly report can take a number of minutes to complete.

What would be the best way to support this?

Hi @Adam_Riggs-Zeigen

Welcome to our community and thank you for trying out Backendless.

By default, the timer logic executes for a maximum of 5 seconds.
This time limit can be extended by purchasing additional functional packs from our marketplace:
