When to Use Control Flow Bricks

The following table describes scenarios where you might use each type of control flow brick:
Control Flow Brick
You need to run multiple bricks if a condition is met
You need to run one brick(s) if a condition is met, and a different brick(s) if the condition is not met
You are calling an API that sometimes fails
You want to wait for a condition to be met. For example: an API results to change
In the Retry body, add a "Cancel Current Action" that runs if the condition has not been met yet (See Exceptions/Errors below)
You want to wait for an element to appear on the page
N/A - use the Wait for a DOM element brick
Trick question! The Wait for a DOM element brick has better performance because it can use native browser APIs to detect new elements
You want to show a custom error message/instructions to the user if a brick fails
Leave the catch branch blank
You want to ignore an error code when calling an API
Leave the catch branch blank
You want to perform an action for each item in a list of items returned from an API
By default an element key is made available to the body You can customize the name of the key provided to the body
You want to preform an action for each element currently on the page that matches a selector
For-Each Element
Current the Page Editor does not support selecting multiple elements. You must manually tweak the automatically generated selector to match multiple elements
