3063482 - Publishing communication scenarios and business catalog extensions takes a long time


You are using key user extensibility or communication management apps.

You are publishing any of the following objects:

  • Custom communication scenarios
  • Business catalog extensions




The publishing of the extensibility object can take a while when other processes are still running for app deletion.

The combination of several publishing processes running at the same time and many roles in the system can lead to longer processing times as each process has to check the roles in the system.


One possibility to reduce the running times is to start a publishing processes after the last one is finished so that there are not too many in the queue.
