Global webhook trapping to a workflow?

Describe the problem/error/question

Is it possible to trap global webhook ‘not started’ and workflow finished messages that I occasionally see, Ideally having a global workflow that writes a more human readable html response.

Ideally I’d like to stop/reformat messages like the following as they don’t much to the average end viewer who is a person and not an application:

What is the error message (if any)?


Please share your workflow

(Select the nodes on your canvas and use the keyboard shortcuts CMD+C/CTRL+C and CMD+V/CTRL+V to copy and paste the workflow.)

Share the output returned by the last node

Information on your n8n setup

  • n8n version: 0.222.1
  • Database (default: SQLite): postgres
  • n8n EXECUTIONS_PROCESS setting (default: own, main): default
  • Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app): docker
  • Operating system: redhat and debian

Hi @0101binary0101, I am afraid these messages are hard-coded, for example here. So for now I’ll convert this question into a feature request so you (and other users of course) can vote on having this implemented going forward.

Thanks @MutedJam - I’ve kept thinking about this and thought maybe I could trap the response in the reverse proxy and redirect the view that way but at the same time I keep thinking it could be solved just as easily if n8n had some global workflow modifiers. These wouldn’t have be used by default but can be set if required.

This could definitely be an option, although I’ve never done this before. I like your thinking though, I am also using a reverse proxy to add other functionality to n8n it wouldn’t otherwise have :smiley:
