Access Discourse database with n8n


I want to get the monthly active users ( with n8n to store them and keep track of the growth of my forum.

I’ve done it through web scraping in n8n, and it works fine, but I was wondering if is it possible to make it in any other way, like accessing the database with n8n and doing queries?

It would be really helpful, not just for this, but for many other integrations.


The supported integrations are, I believe, documented here:

Discourse offers a Data Explorer API that gives you ultimate flexibility, but may not yet be supported by n8n at present:

Perhaps there’s a way you can build the integration with that yourself using n8n developer tools?

You might get help with that at:


Thanks! I’ll check the documentation provided.
