Multi-step API monitor step retry function

The Multi-step API monitor type (MSA) allows you to test your API by performing consecutive requests, passing on information from the response from one step to the next. It may be that an API takes a while to process certain requests, for example analyzing a document or image you’ve uploaded, before it can respond that it completed its action successfully. The new Retry until successful function in the Response tab of each MSA step solves this issue, by allowing you to configure the monitor to continually poll the API for a status update, by retrying the step a number of times, or until all assertions pass. You can find more information in our article on setting up Multi-step API monitoring.
