N8N API - how do you set the error workflow?

I have alot of active workflows, and I want to setup a schedule that configures any workflows that have been created without an error workflow set to be backfilled with a pre-determined default error workflow

What would be the best method to do this? I was hoping to do this via the N8N api but couldnt see any options nor any documentation


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:
