Execute Workflow hangs

Describe the issue/error/question

I’ve got a perfectly working workflow. It works when I execute it in the normal way “Execute Workflow” button. However, when I try to run it from another workflow (master) using the Execute Workflow node then it just hangs.

I’ve got other workflows that are completely identical (just scraping from another host) and they all work.

What is the error message (if any)?

No error message. It just hangs in the master workflow.

Please share the workflow

Share the output returned by the last node

Information on your n8n setup

  • n8n version: 0.161.1
  • Database you’re using (default: SQLite):
  • Running n8n with the execution process [own(default), main]:
  • Running n8n via [Docker, npm, n8n.cloud, desktop app]: Via Cloudron

In my case, your workflow (and page) does finish loading.

Could you LMK how you run this workflow “from another workflow” do you mean webhook?


But I might actually be throttled by the remote server. It’s just weird that it was working when executed on it’s own, but not when remotely triggered (through execute workflow - database) on another one.

I will delete this topic to see if the problem is local here.
