Executing child workflow from a parent workflow and getting the status of the child in parent

Hi Everyone , I have a usecase which should be implemented in n8n . I have a parent workflow which will be activated on a webhook post trigger .after some actions I want to wait until a child flow is executed . I know it is possible using call an another workflow action . but I cannot use " when called by another workflow" action in the child node as it already have a webhook trigger in it. can anyone suggest some solutions for this problem?

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:


A workflow can have multiple triggers.

So, even if the ‘child workflow’ contains a Webhook trigger, you can still add a “When called by another workflow” trigger.


Parent wf =>

Child wf =>
