Hello together, I have the following string [Lastname];[Firstname] and I want to extract the Firstname, but when I use the index to retrieve it from the collection varIndex1 with the value 1. But If I want use this I get an error message. The Index with 0 works. Is it a bug? Would be a regex an alternative for that? E.g. remove the first string up to the ; Who would this work? Best regards Matthias
As the title says, I am trying to execute a Web Request to Authenticate to a web. I was working and suddenly one day, witht he same parameters, when we try the "Run Now" feature, it just stays as "Executing". It does not show any error and does not stop at any time (I have left it running for an hour). It was something that was finished in some seconds. Its a post web request, and it is correct since trying the same request with Postman works perfectly. Any idea on what could be happening? Thank you in advance.
Hi, We have detected that in some workflows doesn't start automatically, although of these are setting to start automatically, but this is not happening always, the 90% start correctly, but in the others the users had to start the workflow manually. What can I check to make that the workflows start always automatically???Thanks
Hi AllSurely this should be easy but I can't work it out and am hoping you guys can help...I have an expression control on my form, that takes it's value from the URL parameters.This works amazingly but sometimes the length of the value exceeds the space on the form. How can I wrap it?
I need to set up a validation rule in a people picker of a form that if the user wants to enter a group lets call it "group A" and enter a group called "group B" he can not enter both of them. So if he enters "group B" he can not enter "group A" and if he enters "group A" he can not enter "group B".
Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me out with an issue I have with repeating sections.I don't know how to work around extracting data from this type of section.Whenever I do try to extract data, this message appears: " Error processing XML. Expression must evaluate to a node-set."Also, am I limited to extracting XML data from repeated sections by using XPath?LinkApart from this, can someone also clarify the difference of repeating sections to repeating values?
Dear all,first off: thanks for this forum. I'm relatively new in Nintex and this is a treasure trove for most everything I need 🙂However, I'm now at a point where I cannot google my way out of the problem. General Setup:I'm building a change request process using a state machine, where several project members have to review a change request and - if the request concerns their area of work - need to enter a solution description and effort estimate. Every 'workstream' has its own field (e.g. Workstream 1 - Solution Description, Workstream 1 - Workstream Status, Workstream 2 - Solution Description, Workstream 2 - Workstream Status, etc.). Problem:I want to send a task to every project member that will ask them to make a decision:a) Either they aren't impacted by the change request -> then they have to click on "Not impacted" in the task; this should set THEIR workstream status to "Not impacted", but not touch all the other workstreamsb) OR they are impacted by the change request ->
Hi, in my repeating section, I have date and amount. Because I can't connect fields in repeating section to a column to extract data, I am doing a calculated value outside of the repeating section to get the total of the amount. However, how can I extract the latest date using calculated value? Whats the formula? I tried using max and it gives me a series of number instead of mmddyyyy. Please note that my date field is a single line text box, I can't use a date field for date because calculated value can't be connected to a date field. This is my workaround to extract data from the repeating section.Thanks
I would like to create workflow on a list to upload list metadata into a library. IF the list item does not have a document attached, I would like to use the workflow to attach a word template to be saved in the library along with the metadata. Is it possible to set workflow on list that will generate a word document template to save in library?
Hello together, I have the problem that I retrieve values from a managed metadata field. It looks like value | adgfbn-fjkdjfkd-fkdslk I want to extract only the left value via Regex. I tried several things. I put the pattern to [|] or [|] But so far no success. Could you help me with this! Best regards Matthias
Hi everyone I was wondering if it's possible to connect to an Azure SQL database from a Nintex Workflow running on Sharepoint 2013 on premise. I have multiple workflows where I connect to an on premise MS SQL server, but cannot get this to work wit Azure SQL. I've tried using many different connection strings, but keep getting "Unexpected SQL error occured". I know that the account I use has access to the database, so there might be other issues like firewall settings. However, before I go changing anything to the firewall, can anyone tell me if it is even possible to to connect to Azure SQL from Nintex 2013?
List nintex workflow to save documents added into a library OR use nintex form in SharePoint library
I am semi familiar with how SP works. Bear with me. Please note, I am not allowed to use SharePoint Designer. 1 - Can I create a workflow on my list to automatically SAVE any documents and data to another library with the exact columns? OR2 - Can I create a library with a button that says "Add Request & Supporting Documentation" and have it open in Nintex form view? I see there is a Nintex form option in my library but need help configuring this.
I have a site workflow that updates an item in a list, then I want it to publish a specific wiki page in a library on the same site. If I was using a list workflow, I could use the Set Approval Status action, but this action is not available in site workflows. Is there a way to publish the wiki page that doesn't require credentials? I'm trying to avoid the Call Web Service action because the password for any credentials I supply will expire, causing the workflow to error. I tried using the Update Item and Update Multiple Items actions, but these don't allow updating the Approval Status field for the wiki page.
Fairly complex form with many rules, fields, panels, controls. Went to launch form designer after doing a save and close, and now it hangs on Please Wait message. Checked with multiple browsers, rebooted, etc. Simpler forms on same site still editable in design tool. The complex form still runs with last published version. Thoughts on methods to trouble shoot? I am not an admin, but can engage admin easily. Thanks!
Hi all, I am trying to pull a string that was input into a text field in my Nintex form, directly into another SLT editable field. To give context, An 8 digit number is input as a string in one field, and this number is the first 8 digits required for a longer string - so I am trying to pull those first 8 directly into the second field to minimize user effort. I am using the Classic Form version. I am assuming this will be achievable with some JS if anybody has any skeleton code they can share? Thanks
I am in SharePoint 2016. Want to create a custom list: product.It will have two columns Product Type and ID. Using the form, the user shall only enter the product type. But I want to automatically generate an ID for each product type starting with 1. The ID will not be displayed in the form. What action do I need to use in the workflow? Thanks a bunch:). Mayank
I currently have flows in Nintex that run when the list item is created. Once the item is created in the list, two things happen: 1 That it tries to start the flow, but does not execute any action and gets the following error: [Flow Name] failed to start. 2 The flow starts, the tasks are created for the users but at the moment the first task is approved, the flow produces the following error: The [Flow Name] workflow was canceled by System Account.
I am in SharePoint 2016 and using Nintex forms. Want to make a field required and prompt the user a message. Do NOT want to make the field required in SharePoint list. I created a validation rule on the save button and also on the column field itself. isNullOrEmpty(fieldname) is not working. What are my options? Thanks a bunch. Mayank
All,On my form (Nintex 2013)I have a list lookup control connected to a separate list within my site.This list has 2 columns: title and description. The list lookup shows the title values.I have a multi line text box.If a value is selected from the list lookup control how can the multi line text box be populated with the description field data and still be editable?If list lookup control value is not selected the multi line text box will still be used, just not prepopulated. I'm wanting to do this without a workflow as the end users will select a value from the lookup list and then want to start writing in the multi line text box.ThanksAndrew
