We are excited to announce the release of two new features: Execution search and Global Variables. These features have been highly requested by our users and will enhance your experience with n8n workflows.

Execution search

We understand the importance of the executions list for debugging errors and monitoring your n8n workflows. As your workflows scale, the need for better tools to search and retry executions becomes crucial. To address this, we've introduced execution search filters, which allow you to:

  • Easily find and action relevant executions of a workflow.
  • Debug workflows more efficiently.
  • Make the executions list more intuitive and easier to use.
  • Users can now add custom data to an execution at runtime and filter by that data in the execution list. This makes it easier to track down executions related to specific entities or browse executions with a common theme.

See the docs

Global Variables

We're also introducing Variables, a powerful new feature that allows you to store and reuse values in your n8n workflows. During workflow execution, n8n replaces the variables with the variable value. If the variable has no value, n8n treats its value as undefined, and workflows won't automatically fail in this case.

As an Admin, you can create environment variables within your n8n dashboard. Environment variables can be referenced in workflows using placeholders (e.g., {{vars.BASE_URL}}), and they can be used in Expressions and Code nodes. Variables are replaced by their actual content at workflow runtime.

See the docs

Global variables and Execution search are available for n8n Pro and Enterprise plans. If you want to know more about our Enterprise plans contact us

These two new features will significantly improve your experience working with n8n workflows. We hope you enjoy the added efficiency and convenience they bring to the platform. As always, we value your feedback and encourage you to share your thoughts with us.
