Retry

The <retry /> tag is used to instruct XMLDelivery to retry accessing the user database, if it has been locked by another operation.

The <retry /> tag is:

  • A child of the Recipients section and is optional

    We recommend, however, that new implementations of XMLDelivery should use <retry />.

  • The first entry within the <recipients> section of the XML instructions file, if used

Use

By default, XMLDelivery exits with an error when the target user database is locked by another operation requiring exclusive access.

Add the <retry /> tag to the XML instructions file, to instruct XMLDelivery to continue retrying, with a five seconds delay between retries. XMLDelivery then continues to retry:

  • Until the operation is successful

    or:

  • For a maximum of five hours

    If, after that time, the user database is still not available, XMLDelivery terminates the operation, with a FAILED error message.

Note:

Because XMLDelivery adds any data in the new_recipients element of the recipients section to the user database and creates the appropriate Filter, the <retry /> tag can also be used for deliveries where you have dynamically added recipients.

See Automatic retry for more details.

Example:

    <recipients>
         <retry />
