API call in recurring workflow


I call an API in a recurring workflow. However, since bubble does not run the workflows in order, the recurring workflow recurs without waiting for the API call inside it to finish.

So my question is: how can I ensure that the next recurring workflow runs only after the API call inside it is finished?


@adamhholmes again any help would be appreciated :slight_smile:

Try adding an ‘only when’ condition to the action that rescheduled the workflow, with a reference to something from the API call - such as “only when result of step(whwtaver step the API call is made in)'s ID (or any returned field) is not empty”…

You can tackle this different ways depending on how the workflow is setup. One way is to create a table that stores your workflow runs and check to make sure the last run has completed of the previous workflow, then start your next workflow.

I have previously posted a simple example of a Data Type structure that could be used. It also solves the problem of a workflow stalling/failing/not-completing for whatever reason and preventing the next one from running
