How to wait for an event in Zapier Action / Asynchronous task in zapier action?

Once I get some data from a trigger, I am making an API call in my personal zapier app action and this API call starts a process in the backend. This is a long process.

I want another action (an API call) to happen once this process is completed. There is an API available to check status of my process.

Is there a way to do this?

I think the best way to do this is to handle this with logic in your zap to send a webhook to another zap.

So the workflow would look like this:

 

  1. Trigger 
  2. Action > Webhook API call
  3. [End]

 

Then your app would send back a response to zapier caught by a webhook:

 

  1. Trigger (Webhook)
  2. Action
  3. Action
  4. Etc
