Question regarding the 'EXECUTIONS DATA PRUNE MAX COUNT' environment variable

Describe the problem/error/question

I’m unable to find the mention of this ‘new’ variable, EXECUTIONS_DATA_PRUNE_MAX_COUNT, in the Release Notes.

Kindly point me towards the release where its introduction was mentioned.

Because, i discovered today that all of my instances have been losing execution data for some time (not being backed up), due to the default value of 10000 being set by this variable (couldn’t find another explanation for the missing data). I have been depending only on the usage of EXECUTIONS_DATA_PRUNE & EXECUTIONS_DATA_MAX_AGE (60 days in my case), only to realise today that not even a day’s worth of executions are being retained, in any of my instances.

So, would be good to know if i missed this in the release notes or not (especially Breaking Changes).

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:

Hey @shrey-42,

I will have a dig through as I can’t remember the exact version I think it was pre v1 though.
