Notion - update database page - relation property not showing

Describe the problem/error/question

I am trying to update a Notion Database Page with the n8n built-in Notion Node. Unfortunately, my property of Type ‘Relation’ of the Notion Database does not appear in the dropdown list (contrary to all other properties). I’ve made sure to share the related database with the integration/connection/credential as described here.

Looking through the forum, I found previous issue reports that highlight that relation properties were able to be selected (e.g. here), so I wonder if it is some sort of bug or deprecated feature?

It seems @Rowingbobcat experiences the same issue as mentioned Notion Update DB page not working on multiple Relations - #8 by Rowingbobcat

What is the error message (if any)?

None, the property does not appear in the list.

Please share your workflow

Hey @peter_brueck,

Do any properties appear in the list, If they don’t what happens if you click the 3 dots and select Refresh List?


If it does fail does anything appear in the browser dev console when trying to load it?

Hi @Jon , thanks for getting back to me.

All properties from my Notion DB appear BUT the Relation Property.

Refreshing the list does not help, and the browsers console does not return anything either I’m afraid.

On that note: I am using Firefox 124.0.2 (64-bit) if that is of interest!

Let me know if you need any additional info!


Hey @peter_brueck,

Ah I missed that bit, I will check that in the morning to see what is going on with Relations.

Hey Jon!

Did you have a chance to investigate this already? Curious to know if it is a proper bug (& potentially can be fixed) or if it stays like this. Would then simply proceed with my current workaround).
