Is "Repeating or Time Based Trigger" supposed to work in background?

I see that it is working in the background when I set the "Repeat every" to 5 seconds.

But I suspect that it might not work when I set the "Repeat every" to the longer duration like 500 seconds.

Is there any known bug related to the "Repeat every" settings?

Also interested in understanding how this feature works better + seeing some documentation on it.

In case there are people that need to find out where the feature is:

  1. Go open configuration

  1. Open "Named & Other Triggers"

  1. Look for "Repeating or Time Based Trigger"

  1. Finally add an action.

I suspect that it might silently stop if a script should throw an error without being caught. I have not verified about that.

I ended up with running a node script in the background instead of relying on BTT. But it is very handy when I want to do something quick.
