Some Tasks might not always succeed on the first try - for example a Task trying to write into a database might have a temporary connection problem. Task elements have the option of automatic retries in case of an exception.

A Task marked for retries is visually different.

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 back off wait time. The formula for the exponential back off wait time is 500 ms * 2 ^ (retry count).

To enable automatic retries for a Task, toggle "Retry on failure" and set the maximum number of retries.

Retry attempt    Wait time (seconds)
1 try 1 second
2 try 2 seconds
3 try 4 seconds
4 try 8 seconds
5 try 16 seconds
6 try 32 seconds
7 try 64 seconds
8 try 128 seconds
9 try 256 seconds
10 try 512 seconds
