How to switch between multiple pin data?

I have a switch that branches to multiple nodes, the problem is the input data set is very dynamic and I want to switch between multiple-pin data.

Right now I have saved them in a notepad and copy pasting one by one for testing. Is there a way to switch between multiple-pin data?

It looks like your topic is missing some important information. Could you provide the following if applicable.

  • n8n version:
  • Database (default: SQLite):
  • n8n EXECUTIONS_PROCESS setting (default: own, main):
  • Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app):
  • Operating system:

Hi @Jackson_beno :wave: At the moment, you wouldn’t be able to have more than one set of pinned data to a node - I’ll send this over to the feature request forum :smiley: Can you go into a little bit more detail about how you’re needing this with your workflow, and how the input data set varies?

The only thing I could think of is two separate copies of the node and deactivating one or the other, but this wouldn’t help if you’ve set this up for Manual Triggers or other nodes that are only able to be added to a workflow once.

Hi! I was actually looking for something just like this. Here’s a typical situation:

I have a form with branches. Each branch should lead to a different outcome, I handle the logic via n8n.
I’m also storing the inputs separately from the pinned input, but I’m doing it in Set nodes. That allows me to plumb them quickly into the workflow whenever I do testing.

It feels a bit hacky, having a set of named pinned inputs would be fantastic.
