When using REST or GraphQL API calls in your care flow, you may want to control the default settings of the built-in retry mechanism when a call is considered unsuccessful.
The automated retry uses an exponential backoff strategy with default settings of
maximum amount of 5 attempts, with
initial delay of 2 seconds and
maximum delay of 1 hour
If you'd like to adjust the settings, you can either change the defaults on your organization's level or per individual care flow.
