I often find myself trying to fix nodes that depend on data in a loop with long calls, or fixing workflows that are called by another webflow.
I don’t want to trigger the workflow each time so I go to the last execution (which failed) and I copy the JSON output of the node I want to simulate the output from, before pinning it in the editor’s node.
I believe it could be much faster.
I would suggest the following:
When clicking on the pen to edit a node
Have a button to “load last execution output”
Once clicked, it would pull the output of that same node ID from the last failed execution
I was imagining the button next to this:
My use case:
I think it would be beneficial to add this because:
It would save time when trying to troubleshoot a workflow that cannot simply be executed from the start.
I don’t think a drop-down where you select the execution would bring added value that would outweigh the burden on the UI.
I am all for a lean UI and honestly I would even find normal to just load last known output as soon as the person clicks on the pencil of a node with an empty output. Hence no modification of the UI at all.
