I would say that depends if you need a feedback at all. Mostly cases you can return http 201 and/or refresh the page and reload you data from the backend. A websocket feedback does not make sense in my view since its way more complicated and makes it synchronous somehow. You can then check the error state then.

The approach all behind that is a Saga

It does not make it synchronous, in some cases you want to inform the end-user about the status and such a websocket feedback loop makes sense.
