Workflow to assign item permissions suspends with description “the user name format is invalid“.
configured workflow task as follows:
Destinations site URL: Workflow context: current site URL
Connection: SP online
List name: workflow context: list name
Items to update: query builder
filters: Update items only when the following is true
Update the items when column: ID
Is equal to
Current item: ID
Inherit permissions from parent: equals value No
remove existing permissions: equals value Yes
User or group name: !!!!this is a text field not a user or group lookup. I copied the exact name of the user groups here.!!!!
permission: Full Control
Custom permission: blank
All matched items updated: left blank
List item ID: left blank
List item URL: left blank
I used this type of task frequently in the past on older versions of Nintex workflow with no problem. I’m very confused by the new interface and the concept of connections. The online resources have been useless.
