Encryption key

Hi everyone,

I have a problem on my n8n instance since the update to 1.0

Since then I no longer have access to any of my credentials in my various workflows.

I have this error message
Credentials could not be decrypted. The likely reason is that a different "encryptionKey" was used to encrypt the data.

I can create new ones but cannot retrieve old ones…

If anyone has an idea, I’m a taker :smiley:

Thanks in advance,

Hi @Freddy64 - welcome to the community :tada:

That error normally means the encryption key has been replaced in the config file or it was changed in an environment variable. Are you using the default database or did you configure n8n to use Postgres / MySQL instead? Any other changes that might have affected this? :thinking:
