automatic activity retry interval configuration

"The Automatic Activity flow execution is retried again (from the beginning) after a while. This procedure is repeated until the Automatic Activity flow is successfully executed or the process is terminated."

what is the retry interval of this activity and is there a way to configure the retry interval on each automatic activity.

is it possible to configure long interval for retry?

Activities have a built-in 5 minute timeout. They are NOT to be used for anything long-running. We can discuss in a WebEx/phone call/etc. if you'd like internally. If you need to go past 5 minutes for an Activity, it is a "red flag" that we are doing something wrong.
