V1 upgrade banner shall be dismissed permanently


Describe the problem/error/question

After upgrade to version 1 I get an upgrade banner. How can I permanently dismiss it? There is a post with a similar issue but the solution explained does not help: How to permanently dismiss v1 upgrade banner (self-host). I do not get the “don’t show again” link although I am the instance owner.

What is the error message (if any)?

n8n has been updated to version 1, introducing some breaking changes. Please consult the migration guide for more information.

Information on your n8n setup

  • n8n version: 1.16.0
  • Database (default: SQLite):
  • n8n EXECUTIONS_PROCESS setting (default: own, main):
  • Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app): npm
  • Operating system: Windows 11 Pro

Clearing the browser cache (hard refresh) worked for me. Ctrl+shift+r or ctrl+F5 on Windows I believe. Or try manually clearing the browser cache?

Unfortunately clearing the cache doesn’t help.

@mutdmour, seeing you’re the specialist for all things frontend, do you have any idea what’s causing this and how to resolve the problem?

There seems to be a bug there. Thanks for bringing up. Enter this into your browser console and that should remove it.

Great, it’s working :blush:. Thanks for your help.
