Webhook not returning execution information

Describe the problem/error/question

When I run a webhook and try to return data in $execution I get the following

“id”: “UNKNOWN”,
“mode”: “test”,
“resumeUrl”: “https://n8n-dev.engage.sas.com/webhook-waiting/__UNKNOWN__

I realize I can use a webhook response node but I was wondering if I am doing something wrong?
Can I at least get the execution ID from the webhook itself?

What is the error message (if any)?

Please share your workflow

Share the output returned by the last node

Information on your n8n setup

  • n8n version: = 1.1.1.
  • Database (default: SQLite): Postgres
  • n8n EXECUTIONS_PROCESS setting (default: own, main):
  • Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app): Hosted Azure AKS
  • Operating system: linux

Hi @padett :wave: Welcome to the community :cake:

When the trigger runs, no execution data would exist yet, and no execution ID has been assigned yet - so I believe this is actually intended behaviour. You’d need that Respond to Webhook node to get that data :+1: You’d also need to change from the webhook responding immediately to this option:

Got it! Thanks!
