how can i use a variable to calculate if the time of my sended request with a variable exceeds?

in my project , i have a token that expired after 10 min , so i want to create a variable that test if the time spent on script from the start exceeds 10 min to refresh it , how can i create a variable that can calculate the time from the start ?

I would suggest a JavaScript snippet and a fork. The js gets the current time and assigns it a variable. In the fork, have a loop with a 1 second delay and a second piece of js that keeps track of the time, maybe an if statement that refreshed the token at 9m 59s

I tried this solution but i think i am doing something wrong .., in my scripts i added a java script under a fork which calculates the time , after the fork, there is the script and i m using a condition for each transaction to test the time spent , but it dosen't work
what shoul i do ?

The idea is sound. I'm not sure why you would have code under the fork or the if statement though

Something like this...

js to get time, store in variable tokenTime=now
request new token, tokenValue=new token
fork
....loop
........delay 1 sec
........js to calc diff between now and tokenTime
........if now > (tokenTime+9:58)
............tokenValue=request new token
............tokenTime=now
request uses tokenValue
request uses tokenValue

Yes, it’s in the example code when you drag a js snippet into your userpath
