Managed Metadata Value Not Displaying Properly In Text Field


When using a Managed Metadata term value within a text field, such as an email body, or Log To History action, the term displays as 'Value | TermIdGUID'

Example: 'Nintex Engineer | b664989e-0ac2-4d49-9a89-d6f7bf092fe1'



This is expected behavior when converting a Managed Metadata term to a string. You can use the Regular Expression action with the following configuration to strip out the GUID:

  • String: {Variable:OriginalManagedMetadataTerm}
  • String operation: Replace
  • Pattern: \|(.*)
  • Replacement String:
  • Output: {Variable:UpdatedManagedMetadataTerm}
