Hi,We are creating a PDF using Document Generator in NAC. The problem is when we add a Rich Text field from the SharePoint item all the HTML is printed as well. I know we will need to use a regex to remove the HTML. Does anyone have any idea on what the pattern should be or if there is a different approach I should follow? Thanks Chris
I noticed an email went out for this and then the link was broken. I managed to find the post for this new feature.Restrict access to start event forms | Community (nintex.com) However, couple questions on this new feature:Will AD permissions be allowed in the future to better manage this? We don’t use groups in NAC user management section except to manage permissions on connections and data sources. Global admin are the only ones who can access and edit groups so this will not be sustainable for our team. In addition, it’s redundant to manage AD group and have to turn around and manage a group in NAC. We need more integration for this to benefit us. Will business owners at some point be able to manage these workflow types in workflow tracking to manage form access? IT does not want to manage this for every process, when all we do it build the tool for the users. Administrative management should be on the business, not a designer or global admin. We would suspect a “form access”
Hi all, Hoping someone can help me. I am trying to design an email using some HTML code. I am using a WYSIWYG HTML editor to create an email (since I dont have the 100% HTML knowledge). In the WYSIWYG editor, my email looks like the below (information blurred for privacy). So I copy the code into Nintex, and it looks the same. However, when the email gets sent, some of the background colours disappear. I am so confused. (again information blurred for privacy) Does anyone have any tips on how to fix this? Thanks!
I am using Xtensions to call an internal web API that returns data in JSON format, and I now want to parse through that JSON to get the value I want. The workflow action that calls the API will store the result in a collection variable. I have to use a “Get item from collection” action to make it readable by the “Query JSON” action. I do this all time for the easy stuff. Now I have an issue because now the value I want is within an array of values in the JSON. If I did a Query JSON action, I would have to use something like  or  in the JSON expression to obtain the first entry, or the second entry, etc. I want to loop through all the entries.My idea is that I can “Query JSON” to obtain the portion of JSON that contains that array, then I can do a loop action or For Each action. However, when I use “Count items in collection” it only returns a count of 1. This is incorrect. In my test data, there should be 5 items. Is there another method of counting these items?Another t
I built an Xtension file in JSON / Swagger that works for connecting through our internal web API to allow a workflow action to call the API. But it does not work in the Nintex Form. It should allow the Data Lookup control to call the Xtension and retrieve results that display in a drop-down list but all I get is “No data provided.”Has anyone successfully done this and can show me their Swagger file? I think there is something wrong with my “results” node in the file.
I have two Signature Form Controls in a New Responsive Designer form. My NAC Workflow (attached to the relevant SharePoint-Online List) is using “Generate document” action to create a pdf from a Word-Template, showing each signature in a table cell.Everything is working fine but the images (signatures) are rendered outside the borders of the cells.How can I avoid such behaviour?
Hello,I am using a NAC Form and need to apply an tracking number to the form every time one if filled out. Is it possible to produce the output just as displayed below? Too, is it possible to restart the numbering scheme to 001 each new year? “XYZ-23-001” XYZ = This is the form name23 = Year 2023001 = assigned sequentially *each year
Hi all - new-ish to Nintex still, gradually getting used to how things work, but I have a couple of questions for a workflow that we’re looking to design…..We want to create a portal where an external party (supplier) registers their details with us. These details are then used to populate back-end systems and initiate a series of workflows (finance checks, procurement checks, etc.) that will eventually automate the process of setting them up as a valid supplier….So, initial thought is to create a simple form for them to enter their contact details, and the internal stakeholder contact.This goes to Stakeholder to approve, and then to internal IT to create an “account” to allow access to the next part of the process, where the Supplier will enter more details, including bank account details. We’re thinking that we could do the account via SQL Server, and hold an encrypted password, but then how would the workflow know that the Supplier is an authenticated userOrWe could register the Sup
Got a call from a user that there were a bunch of issues with some workflows. Turns out that the access token used in one of the connections in the workflow had expired and needed to re-authenticate. OK --- Easy fix to re-authenticate and get the workflows to start working again. BUTHaving workflows fail for this reason is NOT acceptable. I’m looking for a solution to be proactively notified BEFORE a workflow failure happens that a connection has an expired token. This way I can assume 100% uptime in my workflow by renewing the access token BEFORE there is a workflow failure.The connections screen in NWC only shows the date the connection was created. No where is the expiration date documented. So how is a Nintex admin to know when these things expire?Currently the only solution is to wait for a failure (and some angry customers) and then reactively address it by re-authenticating.This seems like a huge design flaw in this product that should be addressed by the dev team.
I needed it, others needed it and it isn't in the NWC Toolkit yet. So, we'll have to do it ourselves for now: Convert a date in text format into a date variable.Here is how it goes:For this example we assume the text date is in the ddmmyyyy format. In the code below you'll see how to change it for other formats. It's sad that we have to (ab)use a component workflow for this but until there is a decent action that does it we'll have to do it this way I guess. Input for the component workflow : a text variable with a date in ddmmyyyy format Output: a date type variable (ignore the time part as we all live in different time zones)Here is the sequence of actions:The trick is that we use 1-1-2020 as a reference date to add the difference in days and months from the input. The actions with the green numbers are explained in detail below. First create a new component workflow and define your variables:Workflow variables:The numbered actions in detail:0 is the position where the day starts.2
Good morning,I’m a newcomer in NWC and Azure. Recently I found an example in Nintex Xtension gallery: https://gallery.nintex.com/t/sharepoint-online-additional-web-actionsI followed the steps in article to create this Xtension and asked my Azure admin to grant permission of SharePoint Online API Permission in Azure. However, the error said when I clicked add a connection in NWC that “The authorization server encountered an unexpected condition that prevented it from fulfilling the request.”I’ve managed to change my security objects or even the authentication of redirect URI. In Configure platforms if I chose from Web to SPA(single-page application), the error said “the Proof Key for Code Exchange is required for cross-origin authorization code redemption.”Did anyone have any idea? Thank you!
I have a SharePoint list with many Choice - Checkbox columns, and these list column fields are included in the SharePoint submission form.I would like to be able to return the choices made on the submission form in the task forms - also as checkboxes - and I was hoping the new Multi-choice control DSV support feature would allow me to do this. However, I’ve followed the instructions in this video and the choice fields return blank. Is it possible to return populated submission form choice fields in task forms as checkboxes using this new feature, or does it only work for the format shown in the video (creating Choice - Multiple checkbox options from list items) - or is there another way to do this?
I am migrating from Nintex for O365 to NAC. I have a process with a ton of choice columns that users must select or update in task forms. I was hoping to use lookup columns on SharePoint and data source lookups in NAC. Here are my issues:Lookup column from the start event shows item ID not a label. Is there a way to fix it? When using a NAC multichoice linked to a data source variable I don't see an option to bring a default selection from SP lookup - is that the case? Is there a way to update a SP lookup field using selections from the NAC multichoice linked to a data source variable? OR should I just stick to choice fields and maintain them in 2 locations: SP and NAC. Will that work for showing exiting selections from SP and updating back to SP? Haven't tested it yet.
Since there is no integration of Nintex Cloud Workflow with Azure Bolb Storage, I am having hear time to able to crack how I can do this using Nintex Workflow. There is this question from an year ago, which suggest Azure Bolb Storage actions in gallery but right now there isnt any such thing available.https://gallery.nintex.com/t/upload-file-to-azure-blob Please guide.
So I used document generate action and kept original format type which is .docx. I’m a little confused as I am only using this to store a file, no changes are actually being made. My word document has 4 bullets of resources for the end-user all hyperlinked to the resource. However, the final output document removed or stripped away the hyperlinks. Why is that?
Hi guys,I’ve recently got our NWC tenant connected to ServiceNow. The idea is that I can create requests, pre-populate the data and assign them to the correct assignment groups etc.I am having issues in how to send the data, in the ‘Create a record’ step, I can’t click onto ‘Add fields’, I can only choose an object variable.I’m not sure the best way to create the object, as far as I am aware I can only retrieve them, not create them.I’ve tried creating a sharepoint list with the columns I need, querying that list so that I get an object and using that in the Create a Record, but I only get a blank Request created, with none of the information.Has anyone experienced anything similar? Thank you!Kind Regards,James
Hi guys, I am using a ‘Get members of an Azure Active Directory group’. I want to then upload these people into a SharePoint column.It’s a multi person people picker field, but I am getting the error “The user does not exist or is not unique” when updating the list.I’ve deleted the column and remade it, is it just not something that’s supported?Thanks!
Ok, I have tried doing this on my own and hit a wall even with the help of this post:Find Document URL | Community (nintex.com) What am I doing wrong? I just need to fetch the document URL at any given interval in the workflow, in the event the document has been renamed. I check if the document is lockedbyuser and then pause workflow for x amount of minutes and loop back. I have copy/pasted the txtCASWS variable into browser and my information for the item shows just fine, file ref is there, but I just can’t get this action to work. :( Step 1 Step 2It doesn’t like my source code, but when I put it in browser it pulls up just fine. Then my goal was to use query json to extract the fileref property: Note: I’m still disappointed a year later ….. that Nintex doesn’t have a way to return site contents for a query a list action. This information should be available like it is through Power Automate.
Has anyone had success in writing a Nintex Xtension (in NAC / Nintex Automation Cloud) that goes through your Nintex Gateway to access your internal Web API endpoints? We are trying to set this up and getting some errors, probably something with our Swagger / JSON configuration file that is not right. All we get is this generic error, Received an error response from the connector: Invalid Xtension URL: . [Error Code: IO.XtensionExecute.ErrorResponse] Maybe we could compare our Swagger files to see what is different.
Hello, I am currenty creating a workflow which is several forms assigned to several people to gather informations and create a Sharepoint Item which includes all of this info.User A fills the first form, B the second one, C the third one and D the last one. It’s a sequential workflow and C & D can fill their forms at the same time, but not before B and B not before A.B can see what A filled, C what B and A filled and D can see what all the others have filled. When A has finished putting info in his form, all those infos go into a sharepoint item, which keeps getting more detailed as more users fill their respective forms. What i’m asked to do now is, between each form being filled, check on the sharepoint, and if an info is changed on the SharePoint, reflect this change in the next form. What i did is, right before the second form is sent to the B user, i request an item in Sharepoint, extract the field at their current state, and use them to fill the part that the next person can
Hello, Bonjour, Kia ora, Guten Tag, Ni Hao! I love hearing people speak different languages to me and I like being able to speak a different language to my mother tongue. We have recently released multi-language support for Nintex Forms that allow forms developers to very quickly create multi-lingual forms. Here’s how to do it and also some tips and tricks. First things first, please ask your Nintex Automation Cloud administrator to enable language translation and the languages you want to support. NB this is the list of all languages you wish to support - you can then pick specific languages on a form by form basis. The administrator would need to go to the Settings\Form settings\Language translation menu. You can see below I’ve turned on all of the auto-translation features and picked the languages I want to support. At time of writing, we support about 120 languages (I did a rough count). Once this is set up by the administrator you are good to go. Build your form as you norma
Can anyone confirm if the help documentation for the yammer connector will be updated? We tried last year to connect to our yammer community, and it was failed attempt. Yammer (nintex.com) With the recent changes Microsoft has done the resources provided are not dated so we have no instructions on how to get this connector to work for yammer (now known as Viva Engage).
