Your Task History ID
IjU3NmMwNTZjMDYzMDA0Mzc1MjY5NTUzNDUxMzU1MTY3NTQzMCI_3D_pc
I have a task that is an API GET request to see if there are a certain number of files attributed to a user.
If that GET request's response is "status: Error", Pabbly Connect flags it as unsuccessful, but allows it to continue with the rest of the tasks, instead of going through the auto-re-execution flow.

The task is NOT set to ignore.

If the task receives a response "status: Error", it needs to fail and auto-reexcute according to the workflow.

Why does it not do this?

Hi @NickJSI,

Based on your Task History, I can see that your workflow has yet to be executed in its entirety. The auto-re-execution of failed steps occurs when the entire workflow is executed. Since you have added a Delay to your workflow, the failed steps will be re-executed once the whole workflow is completed.

Thank you, that makes sense.

What I'm more concerned with is that the task failed, but the tasks after it were then executed. Why is that happening?

Only the steps that are dependent on the failed step will not get executed. All the other steps that are not dependent on the failed step will get executed.

on re-execution, do all the successfully completed tasks (before and after the failed task, unrelated to the failed task) get submitted again or only the failed/skipped ones?

Is there anyway to only auto-re-execute a failed task similar to the auto-reexecute settings?

I have a few ways to get around this. The documentation is a bit confusing, but I think I understand.

If your intention was to exclusively execute the failed task, you should have chosen the "Failed & Skipped Steps" option. Since you opted to run the entire workflow, the message was resent from the beginning.

For more details on using Auto- Re-execution option, please refer to the following thread.
