I am just beginning to look at refactoring some code into the new functions model. I came upon this...
unhandled errors in functions cause the task to hang up.

I rely on the Task Failure event to do my error handling, but apparently it never gets run in this case. I also rely on the systems global error settings to send me an email whenever an unhandled error occurs. this obviously didn't get done either; the task was just hung. it had to be manually stopped in the SMC.

I ran some tests and confirmed the behavior... does anyone have any experience with this? thanks....

Hello Jiva,

What step/action is the task getting hung up on?

A quick workaround would be to set a timeout so that the task errors after hanging for a certain amount of time.

However it is best to address why it is getting hung up to eliminate the issue all together.
