CLI - workflow does not exist

Describe the problem/error/question

Hi, i´m often running workflows via cli. Since upgrading to Postgres from sqlite I get the message:

What is the error message (if any)?

n8n execute --id doPQFFohnjYueIos
The workflow with the id “doPQFFohnjYueIos” does not exist.

Please share your workflow

(Select the nodes on your canvas and use the keyboard shortcuts CMD+C/CTRL+C and CMD+V/CTRL+V to copy and paste the workflow.)

Share the output returned by the last node

Information on your n8n setup

  • **n8n version:1.17.1
  • **Database (default: SQLite):Ppostgres
  • n8n EXECUTIONS_PROCESS setting (default: own, main):
  • **Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app):npm
  • **Operating system:macOs

You have to make sure that the configuration of both is identical. I assume the problem is that one n8n runs now with Postgres and the one you start via CLI, probably still with SQLite.


thx, not sure. This was the only installation and sqlite completely removed.
Ended up installing it again.
