Generell parameters for the workflow

In addition to the parameters for each node it would be great to have parameters or meta data for the worflows.

For example: Is was thinking about having a workflow that deploys other workflows to a production instance. For this it would be great to be able to mark a workflow as “has be synced” or “production ready” this.

This also would solve the “problem” of referring to data from other nodes directly in some cases - this might get really messy. And also the issue with having an “init”-node with data which can’t be accessed from within loop iterations > 1.

Did you check out staticData?

From what I understand should that solve your problem.
