Introduction

  • The Retry Instruction adds error handling to a number of job nodes in a workflow.
  • If one of the jobs in the Retry block fails, then the order is moved to the begin of the Retry block to repeat execution.
  • The number of retries and the respective delays are configured using the Retry Instruction.
  • If the maximum number of retries is reached and a job in the Retry block fails, then the order is considered to have failed.

Workflow Instruction: Retry



Explanation:

  • If any of the three jobs within the Retry block fails, then the order will wait for the specified delay and then repeat the Retry block from the first job node in the block.
  • This example makes use of a maximum of 10 retries and an individual delay, which is lengthened by one second with each retry.
  • If the number of delays specified is lower than the number of retries then the last delay specified will be used for subsequent retries.
