Does the Chat Trigger count as 1 workflow execution (thus cost) per message?


Just a quick one as per title - does the use of the Chat Trigger count as a single workflow execution per message sent? I’m just trying to understand the cost implications of using chat where the executions have the potential to rapidly increase.


It looks like your topic is missing some important information. Could you provide the following if applicable.

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

Hey @EnigmaXXIII,

As each chat message triggers a new run of the worklfow it will be 1 execution per chat message.
