Sleep Action

With the help of the sleep action it is possible to ensure that the stream does not continue for the period specified in the sleep node. Why should someone do this?

For example, it is conceivable that a node sends an API call to a third party system (Javascript action) and the corresponding API does not return a response. Accordingly, the node cannot wait for the answer and would be successful in terminating the call. If you now want to do something with the information from the third party system in the following node and make another call, it could mean that the first one has not yet been completed. In this case the sleep node would help to artificially lengthen the stream between the two nodes.
