HTTP Post flow runs forever

Hi all,


I'm creating some flows to send api requests via the HTTP Post method and am struggling in two ways which are probably caused by the same issue:


1) the response from my post doesn't seem to get returned to flow.

2) the flow just keeps running as it doesn't know the above action has been completed.


Please can somone let me know how to either capture the response from the API or to timeout my request in flow so that we can take more actions after the HTTP Post.

How is your flow created? Could you share a screenshot of your flow?

Please make sure the HTTP Post action is configured properly.

Besides, to time out your action, please go to the Settings page by clicking … on the right corner of the action, then specify a duration for the Timeout field.


Best regards,

Hi Mabel,


This is actually when I'm sending a HTTP web request:




I'd like to add another action once this step has been successful but it doesn't seem to process a response and just keeps running.
