- Click on HTTP Connector menu (3 Dots).

- Default type is setup by-default . The default is an exponential interval policy set to retry 4 times . Other 3 options are NONE & Exponential Interval & Fixed Interval. None generally means NO Retry Policy and you case use it in Flow if don’t want to activate Retry Policy.
