Loop Over Items stopped when there is Continue(using error output) configured

Describe the problem/error/question

A Webhook to receive incoming event log. Item lists split the each log in the message body. I want to get notified when Loop Over items has error so I enable Continue(using error output).

Loop Over Items can see incoming data but it doesn’t pass to “Insert MySQL” when “On Error” is set to “Continue(using error output).” It can pass the data to “Insert MySQL” when “On Error” is set to “Stop Workflow” or “Continue”

Webhook → Item lists-> Loop Over Items → Insert MySQL

What is the error message (if any)?

Loop Over Items stopped when there is Continue(using error output) configured.
Loop Over Items works when there is no Continue(using error output) configured.

Hey @Gang_Ma,

I wouldn’t have expected the Continue on Error option to be used with the Loop Over Items node as there is in theory nothing that would go wrong with it.

I think removing the Error option on the Loop Over Items node is probably the best option for this one, What do you think?
