Issues with adding "older" workflows in n8n latest version

Describe the issue/error/question

Importing workflows from previous versions to current one not allowed to edit.

What is the error message (if any)?

I am having issues with the latest version of N8N, I am migrating the workflows from different server that contains previous versions, and when I import the workflow into the new server, the actions inside are not clickable for editing. If I create a new action in it directly, it will open the action for editing. So seems to be an issue with importing workflows from previous versions.

Anyone facing the same? Thank you very much.

Hi @Jorge_M

Would help to know what versions we are talking about and the nodes that show the issue.

I imported from 0.177.0 and 0.183.0 to the most recent: 0.201.0.

It was basically all nodes. I checked again and, when you import a workflow, they don’t open to be able to edit, but this time, when I added another node to the workflow and saved, all nodes become accessible again, so I assume triggering a new save resolves the issue, not adding the node itself (It was only possible to “resave” using a new node.

Hey @Jorge_M,

That is an issue we are aware of and it should be fixed in the next release.
