What it does

This action pauses pipeline execution for specified number of seconds.

How it works

Once executed, the action starts a timer after which the subsequent action will be executed. Use it anytime your pipeline requires a delay, like clearing cache or asynchronous calls. Please mind that Sleep keeps a pipeline execution active so it’s still counted into parallel runs available in a workspace’s plan.
