It would be really nice to have the possibility that variables could also affect node names.
For following reasons:
- often use Workflow templates
- Inside Workflows complete parts get replicated
- when copying a workflow or a part the nodes get named really ugly with /1 /2 /3
- If nodes could have variables effect their names that problem would be solved
I got that idea, because I often use a Set-Node at the beginning of the workflow to apply all settings and variables I need for this workflow right at the beginning. When I copy whole part including this first Set-Node and nodes after it, using its contents I can replicate similar cenarios really fast.
The only problem I have doing this, that alll the copied node names are a mess with /1 /2 /3 and on big workflows renaming that manually is quite a hussle.
Here a Set-Node, which could control the next nodes names if their names would accept its parameters:
I would be really happy to see that in the future of n8n. Let me know what you think about it?
