Loop through x amount of API pulls after 2s second delay each time

Hi,

I'd like to loop a request that polls an API a set amount of times, with having to create the nodes for each loop.

Currently everything works correctly just that if I want to add an additional page of results I have to copy+paste the nodes, which after 75 pages worth of API pulls my flow is quite large!

The first request is to

"https://www.website.com/?orderBy=_info/lastUpdated desc&pagesize=1000&page=1"

and the next one would be for example

"https://www.website.com/?orderBy=_info/lastUpdated desc&pagesize=1000&page=2"

Is there an elegant way to do this a set amount of times?

Something like this maybe
