Delay

Delay, pause, suspend, or have the execution of your workflow wait for as little as one millisecond, or as long as one year.

Integrate the Delay API with the Filter API

Setup the Delay API trigger to run a workflow which integrates with the Filter API. Pipedream's integration platform allows you to integrate Delay and Filter remarkably fast. Free for developers.

Delay Workflow with the Delay API

Delay the execution of your workflow for a specific amount of time (does not count against your compute time).

 
Try it
Continue execution if a condition Is met with the Filter API

Continue workflow execution only if a condition is met

 
Try it
End execution if a condition is met with the Filter API

End workflow execution if a condition is met

Overview of Delay

The Delay API allows you to build workflows that wait a specified amount of
time before continuing. This can be useful for rate-limiting actions, or
waiting for an external event to occur.

Here are some examples of what you can build using the Delay API:

  • A workflow that sends a Slack message after a specified amount of time
  • A workflow that checks for new data from an external API every hour
  • A workflow that backs up a file to Dropbox every day

export default defineComponent({

    // Specify the amount of time to delay your workflow in milliseconds
    return $.flow.delay(5000)
  },
})

Overview of Filter

The Filter API is a great way to build powerful workflows that can manipulate
and transform data. Here are some examples of what you can build using the
Filter API:

  • A workflow that transforms data from one format to another
  • A workflow that filters out data that does not meet certain criteria
  • A workflow that sorts data in a specific order
  • A workflow that calculates statistics or aggregates data
  • A workflow that combines data from multiple sources
