Is the downloaded Binary data persistent after the task execution?

I was just wondering about this and couldn’t see anything in the documentation. Basically i just want to get some files off a server temporarily and then attach them to an email then the task is done… Are the file downloads stored on the server temporarily or until another command is run to manage the files?

Hi @wgicio, by default your binary data would live in memory during your workflow execution (and in the database if you are storing execution data for your workflow).

You could, however, write them to the file system as well if you like using the Write Binary File node if you like.

Thanks mate, exactly how I hoped it worked!
