Understanding execute / trigger workflow nodes

Describe the issue/error/question

Hi, just wondering and Tyron to understand:

I have 2 workflows:

  1. Workflow ID 49 with Execute Workflow node.
  2. Workflow ID 50 with Execute Workflow Trigger node.

This is the data, which should be handed over from Workflow id 49:

This is what workflow 50 receives:

Should it be like this? Or do I misunderstand how this works?

What is the error message (if any)?

Please share the workflow

Cannot share the workflow, internal api
(Select the nodes and use the keyboard shortcuts CMD+C/CTRL+C and CMD+V/CTRL+V to copy and paste the workflow respectively)

## Share the output returned by the last node
<!-- If you need help with transforming the data, please also share the expected output -->

## Information on your n8n setup
- **n8n version:** latest
- **Database you're using (default: SQLite):** Sqlite
- **Running n8n with the execution process [own(default), main]:** main
- **Running n8n via [Docker, npm, n8n.cloud, desktop app]:** nom

Hi @Kool_Baudrillard

You do not show the data coming into the Execute workflow.
You only show what the sub workflow is giving as an output.
Seems fine, but doesn’t tell us the whole story here.

Hi @BramKn,

this how the first one looks like:

Still not showing the key part of the data that goes into the execute workflow.
As that is where you are confused of it being empty in the sub workflow right?

Shouldn’t the data processed prior to the execute Workflow end up in the Workflow Execute node, which hands over the data to the next workflow?

Maybe it’s just a pebkac issue and I just need an example how a workflow is meant to be set up. :smiley: :wink:

What ever data comes into the execute workflow node will be put into the subworkflow.
But you have yet to show the data going in and then the data in the subworkflow being different.
I might understand the issue/question wrong.

Data which goes in

This it where it should receive it, but it’s empty.

Nope, that data on the left doesnt show anything. as it is still loading.
The data on the right is data going out of the node not going in. So it is the data coming out of the subworkflow, not the data going in.

Yeah, it´s batched to 5 running in a loop.

Yeah, so still nothing you have shown that is an issue.
So please show the actual issue/ the info needed to see what is the issue, or mark as answered.

My under standing is that the data should end up here:

You have yet to show that there is an execution where you actually send data into the execute workflow node
