Flow Variables in Wrapped Meta Node Lost

Hello again :smile:,

I tried today to wrap some nodes into a wrapped meta node. This Meta Node has a Flow Variable input. But these Variables are gone inside the node. I cannot access them using any embedded nodes.

For conveinience I append a workflow creating two Variables and a Meta Node having only a flow variables port. Inside the node you will not be able to see the variables.

Hi @mereep -

By default, flow variables within a wrapped metanode have local scope. If you want to pass them in, you need to configure the WrappedNode Input node inside the wrapped metanode. See screenshot below.

Hope this helps!

Thanks I didn’t know that I have to configure that input element.

May I ask if there is any difference between that method and conecting the flow variable on the head of the outer node like:


In this case, since it involves a wrapped metanode, you need to do both.
