Change file name by Request

Is there a way to change the name of any file when we put a file link to download? In this print of mine there is an audio file and I wanted to change the name of the file using the request configuration itself. (I know we can use other means, but I prefer request)

Hey @Ruan17,

You could use a code node to change the filename or if the response has the content-disposition header set with the correct filename in it you could use something like this: HTTP Request Node: Read filename from content-disposition header when downloading files - #3 by MutedJam

How can I do using header

Hey @Ruan17, I’ve updated the thread linked by Jon using the latest node versions. Check out the latest post which includes a workflow example showing the settings required to return the header on the HTTP Request node.

Hi @MuteJJam, how are you? I wanted to do it inside the node request, not the node code, but thanks anyway friend! I can change it in another very simple way, do you want to see my flow?

Good news on this one actually, looks like n8n will soon handle this header out of the box thanks to @netroy :slight_smile:
