Download PDF error

I have a problem with downloading PDF files, no matter from which source Google Drive or OneDrive. Theoretically, the entire workflow runs successfully, but the file cannot be read or sent. Has anyone encountered such a problem? I am using the latest version 1.16. Thank you in advance for your help.

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:

n8n version: 1.17.1, n8n Cloud
OS: Windows 11 Home

Hi @Okzder, welcome to the community and I am so sorry for the trouble. I suspect you might have encountered a bug here. Can you head to your workflow settings, make sure you save execution data, then re-run the workflow? Let me know if you’re still unable to view or download the file afterwards.

If so, it’d be great if you could share an example file and workflow using which this can be reproduced.

Thank you!

unfortunately the problem still persists. I am attaching a sample file. sample

Hi @Okzder, can you try upgrading to n8n version 1.21.0 or later? I believe this bug is now fixed. If you can’t currently upgrade, could you try storing execution data to verify whether this fixes the problem for you:
