Some Tasks may not succeed on the first try. For example, a Task attempting to write to a database may encounter a temporary connection problem. Task Elements have the option of automatic retries in case of an exception.
A Task marked for retries is visually distinguished.
To enable automatic retries for a Task, toggle "Retry on failure" and set the maximum number of retries.
A Task can be automatically retried up to 10 times. The retries are done using an exponential backoff wait time. The formula for the exponential backoff wait time is 500 ms * 2 ^ (retry count).
