My workflow repeats many times

I created a workflow to translate using openai. But every time I trigger the event instead of running it once, the workflow is repeated many times. Please tell me why, and how to fix it. I only want it to run once when I trigger it

It looks like your topic is missing some important information. Could you provide the following if applicable.

  • n8n version:
  • Database (default: SQLite):
  • n8n EXECUTIONS_PROCESS setting (default: own, main):
  • Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app):
  • Operating system:

version: 1.18.2
database: default: SQLite
Running n8n via Docker
Operating system: Ubuntu

this is my information

@n8n Could you help me?

@Liem_Pham_Van , what is the source of the requests that trigger the workflow? Does it expect a certain response which you don’t provide?

For example, Salesforce flow can send requests to a webhook and it expects an XML response in a certain format. When it does not receive such a response it assumes the data was not delivered and thus re-sends the request again and again. It looks like something similar could be causing the problem for you too.

Check the documentation for the service that your configured to trigger your workflow and make sure your webhook responds in the expected way.

I am triggering the icon drop event in slack. I wonder if this event will result in it being called again and again

@Liem_Pham_Van , that is not what I’m talking about. My understanding from your screenshot that your webhook gets triggered many time with the very same data.

If that is so, what service initiates your workflow? Make sure that your webhook responds to that initiation correctly.

Sorry, because I chose lastNode finish, I switched back immediatly and it didn’t happen again
