Passing Managed Metadata from Nintex Forms to Nintex Workflow

Jump to solution

I am looking for a way to pass the value of Managed Metadata field from Nintex Forms to Nintex Workflow. As I've tried, it worked well with "Single Line Textbox" as a discussion https://community.nintex.com/thread/11449, but when I used Managed Metadata field, it didn't appear my named control in "Named Controls" tab. Therefore, I couldn't send the value to the Nintex Workflow.

Please give me any advice or any work-around with that field?

Hi Fernando Hunth‌, sorry for this late reply. I've solved the issue by myself.

Here are steps that make it work:

1. Drag and drop a Managed Metadata field (MMF) to the Nintex forms

2. Set a name for the control (Ex: TestCategories)

3. In the Nintex workflow, define a new variable with:

Name: TestCategories

Type: Single line of text (for multi selection of MMF - Multiple lines of text)

4. Add a "Query XML" action and configure as below:

XML source: XML

XML: {ItemProperty:FormData}

Process using: XPath

/FormVariables/TestCategories

Store result in: TestCategories

5. Add a "Log in history list" action with the <<TestCategories>> variable

6. Publish the workflow, then create a new item with MMF and check the workflow log history to see the result
