Diagnostics Flow


To assist with troubleshooting, a button has been added to the Node-RED editor that will run a diagnostics flow and copy the output to the clipboard. This output can then be pasted into a GitHub issue or a support forum.


Before version 0.62.0, the diagnostics flow was a separate flow that had to be imported into Node-RED. This flow is still available and can be found here.

Before version 0.62.0

The supplied diagnostics flow serves as a valuable tool for collecting data about the runtime and the system environment. This flow can be importedopen in new window into Node-RED and run. By doing so, it compiles crucial information regarding the runtime and the system environment, enabling users to easily share this data when addressing issues.
