A Forum reader recently asked:
“I was wondering, how could I add a delay(sec) function in a rule action in Policy Builder for an IDM driver?”
And here is the response from Father Ramon …
you can make an extension function call to the java.lang.Thread.sleep(1000), like this:
<do-set-local-variable name="sleep-result"> <arg-string> <token-xpath expression="java.lang.Thread:sleep(1000)"/> </arg-string> </do-set-local-variable>
In versions of IDM before 3.5, you would need to map a namespace instead of putting in the class name directly.
