Execution time vs scheduled interval


maybe a silly question, but as a beginner I am asking me, how is the relation between the maximum execution time (e.g. 40 minutes in the core subscription) along with the scheduled interval?

Let’s say I have an interval of 5 minutes, but a maximum execution time of 40 minutes. So in case an execution takes all the 40 minutes to proceed, the scheduled next executions in the meantime will be skipped, right?

I mean that wouldn’t have any collision or other negative effect, would it?

Thx for helping me understand

Not a silly question.

I can’t believe after 4+ years on the platform i dont have a precise answer to this :rofl: (or don’t remember it)

I’ve always just built my way around that exact situation to make sure it doesn’t happen. my gut says that the request que builds up, but i know that is from how scenarios triggered by webhooks work, so…maybe not.

@Michaela Is there an official explanation of what happens when a scenario is already running, and it gets triggered again mid run, by the scheduler, and not by webhook.
