Nested Retry with "Execute Workflow"

Describe the issue/error/question

When using the “Execute Workflow” i had a failed scenario where the “sub” scenario worked correctly but returned a faulty value leading the “parent” scenario to fail. After fixing the “sub” scenario, i retried the “parent” scenario with the current config. However the “sub” scenario seems to be executed in the old configuration.

What is the error message (if any)?

None. Newly saved “sub” scenario still uses old config.

Information on your n8n setup

  • n8n version: 0.195.5
  • Database you’re using (default: SQLite): Postgres i think
  • Running n8n with the execution process [own(default), main]: own
  • Running n8n via [Docker, npm,, desktop app]: Cloudron

Hey @JUVOJustin,

How did you do the retry was it from the execution list?

Yes exactly. I used the “current” option

I will give it a test, When you reran it was that just the sub workflow or the parent as well? I suspect if it was just the sub it would use the values at the original time as it wouldn’t know to rerun the main workflow as well.

I restarted the parent. As mentioned the sub did not fail, it only returned wrong values not an error. When restarting the parent, the in the meantime updated sub is executed with the un-updated version. Hope that makes sense :smiley:

You did indeed say that, I missed it :slight_smile:

I will do some testing and see what I can find.
