Time between requests

We currently have a REST API transaction in which the first request is to send a message and the second to check its status. I need time between both, as the status can take a while to change. This has sent me several alerts.

As an alternative I am making other calls between them, but it does not help me much and is not the best solution.

I'm waiting

What is the time needed for the second request after the completion of the first request?
In a Transaction for how many steps do you need such a wait time?
Moreover, in how many transactions would you need this wait time?
We need these details to check the possibility of implementing this.

1 - A time around 30 seconds to 2 minutes
2 - Only one
3 - Only one
It is a transaction that sends messages and I need confirmation of the sending, sometimes it can take longer taking into account the response time of the server

We have a similar problem. The API we want to monitor is an asynchronous REST API. We have a call to start the work, however the result (and hence pass/fail of the check) will only be available after some time. Ideally we would poll for a status change but simply waiting between steps would also work. Two minutes delay would also be sufficient for our use-case. But even less would already be helpful. The wait time would only be needed after/before a specific request. Would be fine to have it as a value on the step instead of a separate thing if it simplifies things. To fully support the async polling use-case steps with such a delay could support a retry count (could still limit total request count to <25 of course). But as I mentioned a simple delay seconds option on a step would already be great.

We have a workaround to support the delay between two steps in a transaction. As the requests are waiting for the subsequent request without any action, it will take a toll on the infrastructure. Please get in touch with us at support@site24x7.com with the details of the monitor for which it has to be enabled.

We'll assess the possibilities of bringing this to the Site24x7 web client.
