Add Description to Execution

The idea is:

To have a possibility to save a Title or Reference on an Execution to help in debug.

My use case:

We use many AMQP triggers to run our workflows on N8N, it is difficult to find the workflow that started based on a particular topic.
It would be nice to have a field on the START Node specifying a reference to search on the execution window.
It could also be necessary to have a second dedicated Node to overwrite this first reference.

I think it would be beneficial to add this because:

It will help searching for executions and simplify the support and debug.

Are you willing to work on this?

Yes, but i would need some initial support.

Hi, it should be very helpful to be able to set execution description using $executionDescription = “my description” from the Javascript function node.

Also of course show the description in the frontend in executions lists and be able to search on it :slight_smile:
