List limit in (S)FTP node

When I run it in one of my directories, it says I have hit a packet limit of 265k.
Is there a way to limit so I can pull the most recent 250k?

Then I would need to be able to loop this until I have an output of all of items in that directory.

  • **n8n version: current cloud version
  • Database you’re using (default: SQLite): SQLite
  • Running n8n with the execution process [own(default), main]: manual execution
  • Running n8n via [Docker, npm,, desktop app]: cloud

Thanks for your insight.

Hi @Gohaun, welcome to the community :tada:

I am afraid this isn’t currently an option on the FTP node, so for now I shall convert your question into a feature request. Make sure to leave a vote on it so this can be considered in future versions of n8n.

Perhaps there are alternative approaches you can try in the meantime? For example, if your SFTP server allows ssh access, would you be able to use the ls command in the SSH Node instead?

Were would I find these features requests?

Not that I am aware of on the SSH access. Ill check that out.

This thread itself is the feature request. In the upper left you should see a Vote button (it says “Limit” for me as I have already used my available votes):
