I am trying to extract all nodes (e.g. shop, restaurant, cafe, etc.) from a way (e.g. a shopping mall). Using this, there are some nodes (such as IKEA and Swarovski) that didn't get selected by this script. What did I do wrongly?

I suspect there may be an error in your polygon. This query which uses the retail area for JEM returns both Ikea & Swarvski (although I'm at a bit of a loss about why the latter gets missed).

The polygon was based on the nodes of the way (JEM) which should include everything in it. I will try again with other polygon of other way and report back.

Both IKEA and Swarovski have their names & brands locked. Probably it may restrict the scripts somehow alt text

That's a feature in the editor, it wouldn't impact the Overpass-API search (which does not consider wikidata tags unless you specify them in the query).

I don't think the name being locked is the cause. The name is locked because there is a linked Wikidata. If you look at my overpass turbo link, the node "Monster Curry" (7127656165) which its name is not locked, yet it doesn't show up in my query.
