Retry after GET Request Error

I am using a GET Request node in a loop to get some data from an API. It performs hundreds of API calls. Most of the calls work without error, but when it does run into an error, I’d like it to retry the request a few times. Right now I have it set to fail on error. It probably works 99% of the time, but every now and then I’ll get a “503 Service Unavailable” error. If I retry manually, it will usually just work. This means that I’ll usually have to manually restart execution about a dozen times to get the workflow to finish running.

I haven’t figured out how to use the error handling nodes properly, but I think they may be able to help me. Would someone be able to help me figure this out? How would I design a workflow that would loop through and try to execute a node again if it returned an error?

Hey @stevelp,

Check out this post- very similar request. Re-execute on error
