Delay package

Use the Delay package to add a timed delay to the logic.

You can use timed delay to add the amount of time a bot waits before moving to the next task. You can specify the amount of time in milliseconds or seconds.

Example: If we give a timed delay of 5 seconds, the bot will wait for 5 seconds and then execute the action following the delay.

The Delay package includes the following action:

Action Description
Delay Adds a timed delay.
  • Select the delay type as Regular or Random.
  • Select the Regular option to delay the operation for a fixed period of time.
  • If you select Random, specify the time range in the From and To fields for the system to select a random delay within the specified range.

    You can add Random delay with different waiting time for each bot run at a given command level without having to change the bot.

    Example: Use Random delay when running bots simultaneously on several machines through a WLM queue before executing a database or recorder, or the FTP action. This would reduce the number of concurrent requests made to a database or the FTP server and the performance of the systems will not be adversely impacted.

  • Select the time units in seconds or milliseconds.
