Write Binary File#
The Write Binary File node writes a file to the host machine that runs n8n.
Examples and templates
For usage examples and templates to help you get started, refer to n8n's Write Binary File integrations page.
- If you are running n8n in Docker, your command will run on the n8n container and not the Docker host. /// * This node will look for files relative to the n8n install path. n8n recommends using absolute file paths to prevent any errors.
- File Name: this field specifies the path to which the file should be written, along with the file name.
- Property Name: name of the binary property to which to write the data of the read file.
Append: enable this to append to an existing file, instead of creating a new one.
