In SharePoint 2010 this was not a problem; but now that we're migrating to SharePoint 2016, we are having problems reconfiguring the Create Item in another site action in Nintex workflows. We need to create items in another site in a separate web application/site collection (like we currently do in 2010). Was this feature deprecated in 2016?
The error we get is:
"cannot access site at [url to other site]" -- to elaborate, we get this after entering the url of the site (in other web app) and hitting the "refresh list" button.
What are we missing?
SharePoint Server 2016 (on prem) v: 16.0.4471.1000
2 WFE server + dist cache,
2 App server + search,
1 sql server (clustered)
Nintex WF version: 18.104.22.168
Did you ever find a way to resolve this?
The create activity works across web applications when we created a list on the current site (A) with the same fields as the other web application (B), and then updated the url to point to B. But this is a tedious hack.
This worked for us:
go to internet explorer Settings
Click Internet Options.
Click on the Security Tab
With Local Intranet selected, click Custom Level
Scroll down half way through the page under Miscellaneous.
Access data sources across domains.
If this setting is set to anything other than enabled please update it to enabled.
