Delay Helper - Pause flow execution for some time

The Delay Helper allows to pause a flow for some time, e.g. when a system has a known rate limit of only 100 API calls per minute, or it is known, a system needs some time until an object that has been created is ready to accept child objects that are associated to it.


The helper has the following two options:

  • Seconds
  • Minutes

Note: The maximum to be entered is 59. And the maximum delay time is five minutes. We highly recommend, to not delay for more than 3 minutes at the maximum. Excessive delay times may lead to your flow being paused. It is best practice to keep pausing always below one minute (60 seconds).
