Notion - 409 Conflict occurred - How to automate a rerun?

I’m working on a set of scenarios that sync our work tickets in Notion with the work tickets in Azure Devops.

It’s mostly working fine now, except every 10-15 executions, I get this error when the scenario attemps to write to the Notion DB.


[409] Conflict occurred while saving. Please try again.

If I rerun that failed scenario, it executes with no problem.

It feels like I should be able to tell the scenario that when I get this message, wait 10 seconds, and then try again. Is this possible?

My issue is that my incomplete executions list is building up very quickly with these errors, and it’s not feasible for me to go in and manually re-run each one, especially as after the fact, it might update with out-of-date data.

Any help would be appreciated.

This is awesome - I didn’t realise there was a ‘delay’ module - thank you! I’ll give it a go!


There is no “Delay” module in Make. There is, however, a Sleep module.

@ThakurHemansh This is the third time you’ve advised a community member to use a non-existent feature in Make. This very much suggests that you’re using some AI tool to generate your responses. Please stop doing that as it causes confusion and brings zero value to the community. If this behavior continues, we’ll be forced to exclude you from participation. Please get familiar with the Community Guidelines.

If someone wanted an auto-generated response, I’m sure they would type their question straight to an AI tool, not to a user community. Let’s keep the community focused on shared knowledge and meaningful conversations.

Aha, this explains why I couldn’t find the ‘delay’ module. I ended up using the ‘Break’ module, which allows the automation to retry in the way that I’d hoped.

The only issue I have is that the [409] Conflict occurred while saving. Please try again. error happens quite a lot. Is there a way of avoiding this?

Asking here so I don’t end up asking a duplicate question - moderator please advise if I should make this a new question.


We use this module for delay


Thanks for being considerate about keeping the community organized and and avoiding duplicates. Much appreciated :pray:

Since @Abhishek is sharing some advice in this thread, let’s continue the conversation here for now. Thanks for checking, though!


Thanks very much for your help. The Break module seems to work nicely, as it only repeats if there was an error, and you can set the time to wait in minutes. Great to know about this Tools set, though, as I’d missed it before,.
