Pause before next action in API Workflow


Is there a way to mark a pause between 2 actions in an API Workflow ?
The option “Mark a pause before next action” is only available on classic workflow.

Thanks !

You can take the second action and put it on a different api workflow and schedule it for the future, delayed by whatever pause you’d like. Or if you just need a slow things down a bit, you can try using the terminate workflow action with a condition that will never evaluate to true.


thanks I will try the first option as I need around 5s delay.
Otherwise is it possible to achieve it by running a javascript? I’m no good at JS.

Oh, apparently I can’t schedule another workflow from here because I am already into one.
I think I can only schedule workflow from the front…

You can schedule one api endpoint from within another, but you can’t schedule an api endpoint from a custom event within api.

Ok thanks you are right. In my case its really cleaner to user custom events so finding an alternative such as using JS for the delay would be great :blush:
