Type out how many times you require to retry Workbook’s API if a record does fail as shown in the below image.

How to view which relay endpoints are being used in flows:

You can now view which relay endpoints are being used in flows by opening a selected relay page. As shown in the below image, there are 2 endpoints in this specific relay and in the Used By Flows section, it shows which endpoints are being used in a specific flow and how many times the endpoint/s are being used in that flow. This helps in debugging; to identify which flows are using a specific relay endpoint if an endpoint does have connectivity issues and goes down. It assists in pinpointing an endpoint if there are multiple endpoints in a relay.
