Naming an execution

Describe the issue/error/question

Is it possible to dynamically name a Workflow Execution? For example, if I had an “IF” node, if the workflow went down the true path, is there such a node that could dynamically rename the current execution to something like “True Path taken” and if the workflow went down the false path, it would rename the current execution to “False Path taken”?

I believe this would be incredibly useful for searching for specific runs of a workflow in a sea of other workflows of the same name.

What is the error message (if any)?

N/A

Please share the workflow

Share the output returned by the last node

Information on your n8n setup

  • n8n version: 0.202.1
  • Database you’re using (default: SQLite): Postgres
  • Running n8n with the execution process [own(default), main]:
  • Running n8n via [Docker, npm, n8n.cloud, desktop app]: Docker

That is currently sadly not possible. A feature like that is however planned to be added. It will allow adding something similar to tags to executions by whom it will then be possible to filter by.

I changed your topic to a feature request.
