Opened: Feb 06, 2018
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

Querying for the status of an asynchronous transaction by making a GET request may cause the query to block. The transaction will complete, even though the query may return an error status (400) to indicate that the GET request timed out.

Impact

The query returns an error.

Conditions

A typical asynchronous transaction that returns a 202 status to indicate that you successfully created a transaction.

Workaround

To avoid having the query request block, refrain from querying the transaction for status.

Fix Information

None
