Job times out after 5 hours

Hi,
I have seen this subject being discussed few times but could not see any resolution.
I received the following error: “Build timed out after 5h0m0s” in one of my jobs (Docker executor). Having seen this exact message in other tickets (How to increase job's runtime, Maximum build time for builds), I believe this is a hard limit set by CircleCI.
I have two questions then:

  • Is this limit documented anywhere?
  • Is it possible to increase this limit as I have an overnight long running job and it is normal for it to take longer than 5 hours?
    I also use the no_output_timeout option but this does not seem to be responsible for the timeout.

Many thanks,
Adrien
