Webhooks failing to trigger


I performed a merger of two gitlab instances yesterday via a script that took all settings from all projects in one instance and added these to the other instance via the rest api. This all worked as expected (great :)) but…

Later we discovered that no webhooks from the old projects were being triggered and the log file kept displaying a line:

WebHook Error => execution expired

with no other context.

After some trial and error trouble shooting I removed all webhooks from the newly imported projects and then all the queued up valid webhooks were triggered.

Is this expected behaviour?
