Sending a message multiple times after a specified start time
Use TimeoutControl and TimeoutNotification nodes to send a message into a message flow multiple times after a specified start time.
Use TimeoutControl and TimeoutNotification nodes to send a message into a message flow at 17:00 hours, then send the message again every 5 minutes until the message has been sent 10 times.
Description of the flow
The diagram shows the path of a message that contains a timeout request through a TimeoutControl node. A TimeoutNotification node with an identifier matching the TimeoutControl node then processes the timeout request. The diagram also shows the message that he TimeoutNotification node produces after processing the timeout request.
- Action set to SET
- Start Time set to 17:00
- Interval set to 300
- Count set to 10
The TimeoutControl node validates the timeout request; default values are assumed for properties that are not explicitly defined. The original message is then sent on to the next node in the message flow. If the request is valid, the TimeoutNotification node with the same Unique identifier as the TimeoutControl node propagates a copy of the message to the message flow at 17:00. The message is sent again after an interval of 300 seconds, at 17:05. and every 300 seconds until the message has been sent 10 times, as the Count value in the timeout request specifies.
