In the docs (Built in methods and variables reference - n8n Documentation) the function
$("<node-name>").itemMatching(currentNodeinputIndex) is referenced but I haven’t found many examples of how to use it.
How do I get the currentNodeinputIndex?
I’ve used the number 0 with success sometimes, but today that stopped working on a workflow of mine.
A related question. When using these variables in a code node, does it matter if I’m using “Run Once for All Items” vs “for each”?
Hi @j0dan, tbh I’ve never used that one and simply fetched whatever I needed outside of the Code node (before running any code). Perhaps you want to simply put a Set node in front of your Code node and use
$("<node-name>").item in the Set node?
$("<node-name>").item also seems to work when using the Code node in the “for each” mode.
As for the documentation of the .itemMatching() method, I’ll leave a note for the docs team so they consider adding an example.
