Lately at Transloadit, we've been working on upgrading our /http/import Robot by adding the
fail_fast parameter 💪
For performance-relevant applications, every second counts. That's why you might prefer an Assembly to fail if an import Step doesn't work on the first try. Using this option, you can disable automatic retrying for the /http/import Robot altogether.
You may also find this useful for performance measuring, as retries don't need to be factored in. This then provides you with the power to create the retry behaviour that suits your application. However, its kryptonite is that when an import Step fails, the whole Assembly will need to be retried, and not just this one Step.
We're keen to see how you plan to use this new feature!
