Schedule recursive API like a cron job?

Hi all,

I’m struggling to figure out how to send data to a recursive API like a cron job… e.g. daily in this case.

Here’s what I’m trying to do:

  1. I have a database table of “things”
  2. Each day, I want to run an external API request for each “thing” in the database
  3. There might be up to 100K things eventually
  4. The workflow needs to run every day and automatically

What what I’ve read/researched so far, it seems recursive workflows are scheduled from a trigger such as a button press, then runs recursively through the list, until the list is empty and then stops.

How do I run this every day so that the whole list is processed from scratch every day, without any manual intervention?

Many thanks


Hey Anthony,
I am working on something very similar and curious to know if and how you’ve made it work. This is my first few days on researching recursive workflows and not sure I have a good grasp of it.
Thanks in advance

I am also curious about how to do this.

Hi I´m trying the same thing. Did you find a work around?
