I cannot close a node view once I have opened it

As of this morning, when I open a node edit view, I cannot “Back to canvas”. In the console I get the following error:

frontend-hooks.js:104 Uncaught (in promise) TypeError: Cannot read properties of null (reading ‘name’)

I am using N8N cloud

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:

This appeared to be something to do with my Trial. As soon as I upgraded it worked.


Hey @Calvin_Mann,

Looks like we missed this one last week, This was an issue we were aware of and fixed and in theory your cloud instance would have just needed a quick update to get up and running.

Thanks. Any news on Execute Workflow gets incorrect data back?

Not yet as I have not looked into it but I will pop a reply on that shortly.
