Microservice build timesout

Product/components used and version/fix level are you on:

version: 1017.0.366

Detailed explanation of the problem:

Hey guys. I have rancher installed and running. I created the sample microservice using the archetype. Due to some reason the microservice would just not build. The build always times out. I build other microservices, they build just fine.

I have also attached my project. Can someone try building it ?

I do not think this is the issue here but this would cause issues along the line:


The microservice name cannot be longer than 23 characters:

Also, you must be using an old version of the archetype:


The URLs need to be https for recent Maven versions.

Hi Harald,
I made the suggested changes without any luck

Found the issue: the answer was actually already in the link in my first reply: max 23 characters which need to be only lower-case letters, digits and dashes.

After changing the name, the build is successful for me.
