Remarks

Use this Node to support asynchronous Workflow patterns. Typically one Workflow will be responsible for accumulating tasks by receiving them from a consumer and loading them on to a queue. A second Workflow will then be responsible for de-queuing these tasks in order to process them asynchronously.

When there are no message in the queue, it will wait for the period specified in the PollInterval property. When there are a list of messages to be de-queued, there will be no delay between the messages until the queue is empty.

This Node leverages the Azure Storage SDK and includes automatic retry.
