Flows never finish executing?

I’m just getting started with n8n making very basic flows.

I have it installed via the Truenas SCALE docker/k8s app.

When I test a flow, it will progress all the way through, however when I set it to active, no matter what the flow is comprised of, it just gets stuck in “Executing.”

For instance, I created a flow that just sends an email and set it to trigger every minute. It will manually send the email if I click it in Test, however when I set it to active it creates a new Execution every minute, but that execution never completes.

The flow is just Schedule > Send Email (SMTP).

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:

Hey @oguruma,

Welcome to the community :partying_face:

Can you share how you are running n8n? It sounds like you might be trying to run in queue mode but don’t have any workers correctly configured to pick up jobs.
