delay in a playbook

L1 Bithead

Hello everyone, 

 

What is the best option to add a delay in a playbook, for example I have 2 automated tasks and want task 2 to start after task 1 finishes by 1 hour.

 

I thought of creating a one-line automation that has time.sleep(amount) and adding this automation between the 2 tasks. but not sure how safe is this especially for long times.

 

any recommendations.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi @m.hamadieh ,

 

There is a sleep automation script for this purpose. Selecting "run without a worker" from the advanced task will not consume any worker. Please be informed that this is only advised for this automation.

You can also use SLA Timers instead of Sleep, it was covered in a recent Blog post:
