Dear n8n gurus,

I have a workflow that is failing and the assigned “Error workflow” is not being triggered.

And below you can see the workflow seetings:

And this is my error workflow that for some reason is not being triggered:

What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance for your support!

Hi @Fortian

Errors only trigger with active/background workflows.
That said, there is a bug that is solved in 1.24 not sure if it was there in 1.21 but it was in 1.22 and 1.23.
