Hello. I am helping my team out with SharePoint development and working on a Nintex workflow.
We are using:
I am hoping that after a request has come in an been approved (first part of workflow) that I can "create item in another site" aka create an VSTS task item via SharePoint/Nintex workflow.
Is this possible? If so, any advice or documentation would be great.
Thank you in advance.
VSTS offers a REST API that might offer what you are looking for.
Thanks for the references... this was asked of us today if it was possible and I assumed we could do it, just have no clue on how to. I will have to give this a once over and see what I can do!
Are you currently doing this now anywhere? Just wondering if there are any examples to follow.
I'll let you know how it goes!
I wanted to check in on this, and let everyone know that I was successful in connecting to VSO and able to create a work item by using the Web Request action in my workflow. It took a bit of messing around, and some playing with Fiddler, but I got it working. I am trying to do it using Microsoft Flow as well in O365, to see if one is better (more straightforward) than the other and what (if any) are the benefits/disadvantages to each.
Sarah Wallis - I am connecting my Nintex 2010 workflow to Visual Studio Online and there is a ton of info out there.
I would check out Work Items | REST API Reference for Visual Studio Team Services and Team Foundation Server on how to create work items. I would try it out in Fiddler or Postman first to understand all the parts to it. Then try to get it working in Nintex WF.
Hoping to write up a blog on it next week if I have time!
Unfortunately I did not
I am actually working on recreating this within Nintex Workflow Cloud as we are moving in that direction and it is on my list of things to do. If you have any questions, please let me know and I will see what I can do.
I have all my notes from when I did this connecting Nintex Workflow 2010 to Visual Studio Online if you are interested in that. I just need to organize them so others can read
