Is there any option to get "config" details in a function node?

Hello All,


I have a configuration in my flow like this, is there any way to get the saved "configuration" in a normal function node? In this case I wanted to get the "share" path(Just like context global.get() or flow.get())

Thanks in advance

To my knowledge there isn't - at least, I have never needed to.
This can be seen as a security concern if so, if config nodes have credential info for example.

I of course could be entirerly wrong here.

Hello .. maybe you can utilize Node-red's HTTP Admin API and request the whole flow structure
and from there filter() the Config node you want .. its easier if you give it a meaningful name and filter based on that. A bit unorthodox but it can work.

Example Flow: ( change to your Node-red IP or 127.0.0.1 in the http request node and here my config node is named: myConfigName )
