I have SharePoint list with Rich text column "Description". I am calling Web service action in Nintex workflow with Description Column value.
For empty paragraph tags "<p></p>" call web service action is adding question tag like "<p>?</p>".
I printed the values before calling web service action("<p></p>") and values received at asmx service function("<p>?</p>") both are different.
I have selected Encode inserted tokens It seems encoding inside call service action causes this issue.
Please validate this issue and suggest me.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I am talking about "Call web service" activity of nintex workflow.
To reproduce this issue
1. Create a test webservice with a function that prints parameter value.
2. create a sharepoint list with rich text column.
3. Create a workflow that starts on item creation and calls webservice. pass rich text field value to it.
4. add a new item with "<p></p>" in rich text field. and check webservice printed value. It will be "<p>?</p>"
so, are you querying you own web service?
are you sure it's configured properly?
I've setup my own test scenario and do not see any problem.
when I open run now I get encoded HTML elements. no question mark so far.
and this is what I receive when I execute service call.
within requestReceived tag web service simply returns me back what it received on input.
so no question marks in my case
and this is what I get logged by web service
Hi Marian Hatala,
Thanks for your support and sorry for delayed response.
Actually i am pushing data to SQL table using "Call web service" action. Issue is with SQL field data type. I changed from "text" to "nvarchar" issue got resolved.
