Problem with encryption key

Describe the issue/error/question

We have a problem with encryption key.
When we run workflow manually, all is fine, but if we use node “Schedule trigger” to run any workflow I get an error attached below.

We have set the env variable “N8N_ENCRYPTION_KEY” before the first run.

What is the error message (if any)?

ERROR: UNKNOWN ERROR - check the detailed error for more information
Credentials could not be decrypted. 
The likely reason is that a different "encryptionKey" was used to encrypt the data.

Information on your n8n setup

  • n8n version: 0.218.0
  • Database you’re using (default: SQLite): PostgreSQL
  • Running n8n via [Docker, npm,, desktop app]: Docker

Hey @Majkel97,

Welcome to the community :raised_hands:

Are you running n8n in queue mode? Normally I would only expect to see that if the encryption has changed so it is a bit odd that it works manually.

Thanks for your reply.

Yes, we have the executions mode set to queue:

Hey @Majkel97,

Do you have the encryption key set to the same value for all of the worker instances?

Yes, should be the same:

    image: n8nio/n8n:0.218.0
      N8N_ENCRYPTION_KEY: <key_here> <---
      NODE_ENV: production
      replicas: 2 <----
        max_replicas_per_node: 2 <---
      - n8n
    command: n8n worker

Hey @Majkel97,

That is odd, It might be worth checking the logs for the workers to see if it is only one of them throwing the message.
