n8N wait node (webhook call)

Describe the problem/error/question

I want to resume my workflow from outside n8n not from an internal node.

What is the error message (if any)?

No error or message. But when I reach the wait node, I can not continue be

Please share your workflow

(Select the nodes on your canvas and use the keyboard shortcuts CMD+C/CTRL+C and CMD+V/CTRL+V to copy and paste the workflow.)

Share the output returned by the last node

Information on your n8n setup

  • **n8n version:1.0.1
  • Database (default: SQLite):
  • **n8n EXECUTIONS_PROCESS setting (default: own, main):own
  • **Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app): npm
  • **Operating system:Windows

Hey @Nazih_Saba,

Can you share a bit more about this? You can resume a workflow outside of n8n using the On Webhook Call option under the wait node, Are you already trying to use this and seeing issues?

Exactly what I want. I want to try and trigger the wait webhook from postman. But I dont know what URL I should use.

Hey @Nazih_Saba,

I normally add {{ $execution.resumeUrl }} to a set node at the start of a workflow which will show you the URL when I am testing and for my workflows that require a user to do something I send it in an email or a Slack message.

Can you please share an example if that’s possible?

Hey @Nazih_Saba,

An example of which approach?

Set Node
This is with a Set node, Once you run the workflow check the exucution log and click on the Set node to see the URL.


Sends an email with the resume URL in it

Thank you a lot for your time and answers. Im trying now the first approach, hope it will work.
Thank you again
