Throttle a flow action

I have a flow with a recurrence of 15 seconds which polls a Swagger REST api. The rest API just returns some aggregated data. The flow has a condition to send a chat message when one of the properties of the response is greater than 2. This works fine. But now I get spammed every 15 seconds until the property drops below 3.


It would be helpful if we could set a "don't execute this action for the next x seconds" field per action (or a "don't execute this flow for the next x seconds").

hi @arnoldp  you can add a delay action before the action you need to wait.
