Create Item In Another Site Fails on User Does Not Exist

Jump to solution

Source List Field

I have a people field that may or may not have content.

 

Destination Library Field

I need to populate a destination library people field.

 

The Issue

When the source people field is empty, the Destination people field errors as it is looking for a valid user when I simply want it to be NULL !!!

 

The Error Message

"Create Site Specific Item Activity The user does not exist or is not unique"

 

A Partial Solution

Error Creating an Item with a Person/Group Field in Nintex Workflow | TechRhodes

 

Immediate assistance required !

 

Thanks in advance.

Kerry,

Can you share your workflow.  I replicated this to ensure it wasn't a bug and it worked fine for me.  I looked at the referenced link and that does show going from a list content type to a document set.  Those are two different content types, just FYI.

Is the people field required in the future list?

Kerry,

Not sure why you are using a regex expression.  That may be the source of your issues.  If you are having to translate the person ID it may be tricky to get that done.

You can achieve a similar thing by create a people/group variable in the workflow if you need such and using that.

The blog article is correct for what is it addressing.  However, I'm not sure your needs are the same.  Again that is the best guess from what I could tell.
