Feature Suggestion - Auto Naming Nodes


As everybody knows, naming nodes is key for workflow readability.

My suggestion is to implement auto-naming for frequent use of notes:


  • a “Constant Value Column” or a “Rule Engine” setting a column , could be automatically named with the name of this column.
  • a “Joiner” column could be auto-named with the type and joining column, like “Left join on country_id”
  • a Table creator with a small number of columns could be named with the column names
  • Every “input” node could be named with the variable name

Of course if needed, the user can always override the default name.

It could be done for simple cases only, which would already save a lot of repetitive actions and greatly improve readability when the developer is lazy about commenting. ( and maybe evolve in the future )

Thanks for considering.

Thanks for the feedback! I will add this to my list of items to run by the development team. :slight_smile:

EDIT: Also, there exists a ticket for this (internal: AP-13944). We’ve added a +1 to it based on this thread.
