The Delay Trigger is needed when you want to wait for a certain amount of time, unlike a timer trigger, which fires on a set schedule. The DelayTrigger is particularly useful in default error handlers where you need to pause for a time before retrying a particular action.
The following attributes are available for configuration on a DelayTrigger:
- The count describes how many times the delay trigger will fire before it expires.
- The delay time expression specifies either the amount of time the delay trigger will wait.
- The expiration flow indicates the flow the timer trigger will take when it expires (the count reach 0).
- The expiration time expression specifies the time that a delay trigger will expire.
When a delay trigger fires, the result indicates whether a delay trigger fired or expired. If true, the delay trigger fired. Otherwise, the delay trigger expired.
