Getting input data from wait node

Looks like the UI does not refresh automatically to indicate workflow progress when using wait node, I am able to get the data from looking at the execution history.

Hi, I am sending some body to my wait node in my workflow, I want to use the Set node to see the data sent as input body when triggering the wait node but not sure how to do it. I am unable to see any type of input data of the wait node.
However, I am able to see the input body data when using respond to webhook node back in my api client, but still not able to see the data in my n8n UI.
Would be helpful if someone could shed some light on how to see the input body data to wait node or firstIncomingItem data of respond to webhook node in n8n UI.

Information on your n8n setup

  • n8n version: 0.179.0
  • Database you’re using (default: SQLite):
  • Running n8n with the execution process [own(default), main]:
  • Running n8n via [Docker, npm,, desktop app]: npm

Hi @ashwin, I am afraid this is the expected behaviour.

When running such a workflow you should see a message about the execution data not being available:


If you click on the Turn on saving manual executions link you can enable the saving of such data in the pop up:

Once done, you can open and view such data via the executions list:

Took me a while, but was able to figure it out. Have also edited the question.
Thank you very much for your response @MutedJam
