Describe the problem/error/question

Activate a workflow that contains a redis trigger node, this request blocked.

What is the error message (if any)?

Please share your workflow

Share the output returned by the last node

Information on your n8n setup

  • n8n version: 0.227.0
  • Database (default: SQLite): mysql
  • n8n EXECUTIONS_PROCESS setting (default: own, main): own
  • Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app): npm
  • Operating system: activate workflow

Hi @motorfu2017, welcome to the community :tada:

I am sorry you’re having trouble. In order to better understand what’s happening here, I’ve set up a small test environment for n8n + redis using the below minimal docker-compose setup:

services:
  n8n:
    image: n8nio/n8n:0.227.0
    ports:
      - 5678:5678
    environment:
      - N8N_USER_MANAGEMENT_DISABLED=true
  redis:
    image: redis:latest
    ports:
      - 6379:6379

I’ve then manually executed your workflow and published a message using the Redis CLI:

image

n8n receives this message as expected:

Can you confirm which error exactly you are seeing? Are both your n8n instance and your Redis instance able to talk to each other?

Hey @motorfu2017,

Oddly enough I was able to reproduce this so I have created N8N-6414 as our internal ticket for this. I have also closed the GitHub issue you opened for it so that we are only tracking it in one place.

There is no problem operating the redis triiger node.
Sorry, maybe I didn’t express myself clearly.

The real problem is to create a workflow and include the redis trigger node,then click the Activate button in the upper right corner, It’s always loading. It seems that the request is blocked.

Thanks @motorfu2017, it sounds like this is the problem @Jon noticed. We’ll keep you posted on the fix

Ok,thanks! I can’t wait to be surprised.

Ok, thank you!

One more question:

Again, this is the example up here.

When I manually execute this workflow, and click stop, it’s always loading. This running workflow cannot be terminated。

I suspect it is related to the same issue if it is the same workflow.
