Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Administrator work center
  2. Click on Business Users view
  3. Select all relevant users
  4. Click on Actions > Assign Security Policy


Due to the time taken the operation was timed out.


We recommend using Data Workbench work center for a mass change of business user data. You can use the entity Employee. First, you should download all instances that need to be updated. Then, you change the User_Password_Policy to the target value. After that, you perform an import (update individual object). This way the change will be performed in batches. It is also using multiple threads.

We recommend updating only 10 – 20 business users directly when doing it via the Business Users OWL.
