sometimes the value(s) of a node property are dependant on the value of another node property. For example in Asana, there exist both “Workspaces” and “Projects”. In the existing Asana integration, https://github.com/n8n-io/n8n/blob/af5c7e75fac8ed23ac01e77baed9ecdf09e93055/packages/nodes-base/nodes/Asana/Asana.node.ts, the workspaces are loaded with loadOptions (works well), but there is no property for “project”. Now I tried to add it, but it’s not that easy, because in order to get the relevant project ids, you need the workspace id.
So there needs to be a way to mark a node property as dependant on another property. If property B is dependant on A, then if A changes, the loadOptions function is called (again). I realize that this is not trivial, as you need to check depth of depdency / circular dependency etc., but it’s quite necessary in my opinion.
This is similar to [Node Creation] How can I get previous properties in loadOptionsMethod.
However, I want to use the results from loadOptions in the same node. But I guess it makes sense to expose them for later nodes, too.
