No binary data exists on item

Getting the error ‘no binary data exists on item’ even though there appears binary data in my input and i’m passing the correct input data field name

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:

n8n version: 1.12.1
running n8n via: n8n cloud
operating system: windows

Hey @Osas,

That looks good but I would need to see your full workflow to work out what is going on, Is the node with the binary data the node before the http request node or is it a few nodes back?

Hi @Jon

The node that returns binary data is 2 nodes away

Hey @Osas,

That will be the issue, The binary data needs to be in the node before the node you are trying to use it in. You may need to use something like a merge node to bring it closer to where you need it.
