The Hive Create case based on Template


I’ve been playing aroud with n8n and I came accross a doubt that hopefully someone can help me with.

I have been using n8n to pull some data from Elasticsearch and open Alerts or Cases in Thehive. Instead of using multiple TheHive Nodes (one to create a Case and others to create the Tasks) I would like to know how to create a Case based on a Template.

I may be wrong, but I believe that if this would be possible in n8n, in the n8n TheHive Resources should exist a “Templates” object, in order for me to be able to query and select existing Templates.


In the Thehive4py API, the “Case” Class has a field named template, which if filled, will use the corresponding Template when opening a new Case. This way the n8n Workflow would become simpler to create, since I would already have multiple tasks previously created.

Kind regards,

Information about the n8n setup:

  • n8n version:
  • Database: SQLite
  • Running n8n with the execution process: own(default)
  • Running n8n via: Docker
