Matrix Notifications

We are testing out sending messages to both a self-hosted Matrix server and an Element hosted Matrix server. We immediately noticed that we are not getting notifications of these new messages and as best as we can tell, the messages are coming in as already read and so are not generating notifications. We’ve reached out to Element support on this, but I suspect it’s an n8n issue. Has anyone else run into this using the n8n node for Matrix? Thank you.

Nevermind, I believe I know what the issue is. Because the n8n API is using my own token, the system believes (somewhat rightly) that I’m the one sending it. I’m pretty sure if I create a separate user for this purpose, the issue goes away. Will confirm shortly.


Confirmed, that was the issue.
