Is it possible to return the GUID of
the current item in a workflow.
I need the current item guid set to a variable so I can build a dynamic link to the start form for each item.
I know I can get the current item GUID in a SP Designer workflow
as you can select set variable = current item then GUID is present as a choice.
I do not see this in Nintex.
Any advice on how to retrieve current item GUID would be appreciated.
In the Set Workflow Variable Action, when you put the cursor in the value, in the Insert Reference pane (in O365), I can select GUID.
Can you check if you can,
Hi Alexey, your comment got me thinking and indeed a custom Camel query list action will do it.
SharePoint Manager to the rescue..internal name.... surprise, surprise is GUID!
So added a query list action, went to Caml Editor and entered the following - see screen-shot below for query list action.:
I can now build a dynamic URL to the start form of a Nintex workflow from a button.
Tip: replace ID in url with with current itemID and itemguid: yourguid variable, as below strGUID. List ID and template ID will remain the same for each item in the list the workflow is run against.
I am using Nintex Workflow with an on-prem SharePoint 2013 farm. I am trying to use the caml query in a query list action to retrieve the GUID of the current list item. I created a simple two-step list workflow. The first step runs the query list action as shown and stored the resulting GUID in a single line of text variable. The second step just emails the resulting GUID to myself (for test purposes). When I run the workflow, the email shows that there is nothing in the "varGuid" variable where I believed I was storing it. My Query List action is configured as follows:
I am not sure what I am doing wrong. I am not sure I am properly getting the "GUID" field to store in varGuid. Any ideas on what I have that is incorrectly configured and on the correct way to retrieve the GUID field? Any help would be appreciated.
