Hi @JulienDelRio I know your question has already been answered, but maybe you might be interested in a variation on this workflow that I use to backup my workflows and credentials from my (macOS) Desktop App. This workflow runs every day at midnight, creating a new folder with date/timestamp in my n8n backups folder in my iCloud and copying all workflows and credentials … without the passwords …
As I’m using the Desktop App, my port number is 5679. So you might want to change that to 5678 in the http nodes. You will also need to specify your backup folder in the execute command node.
Just to be complete, This is my new backup solution
It uses the CLI tool to export the worklfows to a folder then reads the files and saves to Github using the nodes, It mostly works the same as the old popular workflow backup it is just fetching the data that is different
Thank you so much. I got it working smoothly. Actually this Cookie part is very important if you have multiple HTTP Request node and it can only be set after I ran the Authentication node once, in order to get the correct Output data.
Since I am backing up the workflows to a git repo, I wish there was a better way to not include my email and password as post parameter and there was a way to provide authetncation via the credentials. right now this hack will expose my password in the workflow which then is pushed to repo.
