Response Format from HTTP request


First of all thank you because every time I write a message you help me a lot.

I am having a problem. In a workflow I have, it must make a request to an API for each input to the HTTP request node. The API returns a JSON format.

When I configure the node with Response Format = JSON (Screenshoot 1), when it makes many requests it fails (something that if I do it by code outside of n8n doesn’t happen to me). And when I don’t configure Response Format, it returns a string (Screenshoot 2).

With Response Format = JSON I have configured in case the API gives me error to continue by another output, but it never comes out by that output.

I think it could be a issue with n8n. I have it hosted on the latest version.
Thank you so much!

  • n8n version: [email protected] (last version I think)
  • Database (default: SQLite): I don’t know, so I think that it was SQLite
  • n8n EXECUTIONS_PROCESS setting (default: own, main): Where can i check it?
  • Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app): docker via digitalocean
  • Operating system: Ubuntu

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:

Here is an example

Hey @fval90,

Can you share an example workflow that reproduces this issue and the error that you are seeing? At the moment it just looks like there is an issue with the response from an API but without seeing the data it is hard to say exactly what the issue is.
