Azure Functions - Premium Plan - max execution time

Marcin Dzięgielewski 41 Reputation points


When browsing documentation I found that Premium plan allows for unbounded execution time (


But there is a comment saying: (7) Guaranteed for up to 60 minutes.

So my question is, can I safely run functions on premium plan that exceed 1h execution time or is it a roulette?

    Hi anonymous user-8698 ,

    Thanks for posting your query in Q&A forum.

    For premium and dedicated plans, the max timeout duration is unbounded however you need to make sure that the memory utilization and cpu utilization is not exhausted. For long running functions (~60 minutes) , I would suggest you to use durable functions.
