Pause and Restart Workflow Action

Can you implement a workflow status action as part of the no-code setup?

I’m using workflows to set up alerts. When an alert is triggered I’d like the workflow to pause until I manually (or use another action) enable it again. I know that there is a delay action but you can’t undo it within the editor.

I’d like the Workflow action to be able to pause and trigger other Workflows. It’s kind of like the “Execute Pipeline” activity from Azure Data Factory (Execute Pipeline Activity - Azure Data Factory & Azure Synapse | Microsoft Docs), except you can also pause the current workflow.

Hi @bob-xpnews

First off, welcome to the Pipedream community. Happy to have you!

That’s an interesting use case, thanks for sharing.

Did you know that the $.flow.suspend() method can suspend a workflow until you request a specific URL?

You can then send this URL to your own email, private Slack channel, or Discord message to yourself as a notification to cancel or resume the workflow.

Is this closer to what you were looking for?
