Type: Feature Request
Allow http request timeout to refer to a custom variable
I am logging this feature request on behalf of Eugeniy Gorbovoy.

Currently the timeout setting of http requests allows only numeric input and defaults to 2000 ms when left empty. The initial plans are to implement a global project-level setting for timeout that all http requests should inherit (unless locally overwritten). (I hope we will have it delivered in some of our releases in the near future.) This should handle most cases when users want to manage the timeout from a single place instead of manually increasing it for every new http step they create.

Still the idea for accepting a reference to a variable seems appealing since some users might prefer to have several "tiers" of timeout rules across the test project and manage them using variables. Any comments and shared use-cases are appreciated.

This setting also needs to be on project level, rather than just test level.

Its not feasible to go and set the setting once the scripts are created

I think this would be a great addition to the tool, and provide much needed ease of use, and flexibility.
