Hi, so I was trying to use a sha1 crypto function in either crypto/function node, but since it’s not supported in the crypto node & n8n cloud can’t import custom npm functionality, I assume I would have to use the crypto function from somewhere else outside n8n then? Or is there an alternative that I’m not aware of? Thanks
our Crypto node does support signing with SHA-1 using a private key. Is that what you were looking for?
Hi @lamelama, the
crypto module is one of the few available npm modules on n8n cloud. So if you, for example, want to calculate a SHA1 value based on a string, you could do something like this:
Just tested this on my own instance and it’s working fine:
Thanks for the reply,but the function from the comment below is actually what I’m looking for. Just as a side note for some reason I couldn’t find the Alrogrith Name dropdown option the first time but once I saw your post & see that there’s supposed to be an option there I deleted the node and readded & it finally showed.
Yes this is exactly what I’m looking for initially I was looking to use separate npm module called sha1 which I couldn’t get to work.so this would work for me. Thank you
Glad to hear this works for you, thanks so much for confirming!
Hello, Dear MutedJam!
When i try to use you sample, i have error: ERROR: Cannot find module ‘crypto’ [Line 1]
What can be wrong? Moreover, the crypto node works
