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 Python API

Setup the Delay API trigger to run a workflow which integrates with the Python API. Pipedream's integration platform allows you to integrate Delay and Python 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).

Overview of Delay

The Delay API in Pipedream is a built-in function that allows you to pause a workflow for a specified amount of time. This can be incredibly useful when you need to stagger API calls to avoid rate limits, wait for an external process to complete, or simply introduce a delay between actions in a sequence. With precision up to milliseconds, the Delay API provides a simple yet powerful tool for managing timing in automation workflows.

Connect Delay

export default defineComponent({
  async run({steps, $}) {
    // Specify the amount of time to delay your workflow in milliseconds
    return $.flow.delay(5000)

Overview of Python

Develop, run and deploy your Python code in Pipedream workflows. Integrate seamlessly between no-code steps, with connected accounts, or integrate Data Stores and manipulate files within a workflow.

This includes installing PyPI packages, within your code without having to manage a requirements.txt file or running pip.

Below is an example of using Python to access data from the trigger of the workflow, and sharing it with subsequent workflow steps:

Connect Python

def handler(pd: "pipedream"):
  # Reference data from previous steps
  # Return data for use in future steps
  return {"foo": {"test":True}}
