Nintex Site Workflow - URL Issue

I’ve created site workflow which is running on top level site and going through all Announcements list on sub-sites level to retrieve value/content from Body column (which is Multiple lines of column type with Enhanced rich text option) and sending Body column value in send email workflow action.

 

Issue: Somehow Site workflow send email activity is changing absolute URL to a relative URL for Announcements body text, so when I received email with hyperlink it has relative URL which is broken URL without SharePoint site name.

e.g. Email has /sites/subsitename/listname/documentname URL instead of http://webappURL/sites/subsitename/listname/documentname.

 

Interesting thing is, if I create and run workflow on list level and use send email activity to retrieve value/content from Announcements Body column – everything works fine, I’m getting absolute URL from list workflow but site workflow is not appending web application URL to all the links inside value.

 

I saw someone also has similar issue like me: https://community.nintex.com/thread/5819. As suggested in post - I really don’t want to mess up with any global/default settings provided by Nintex workflow.

 

As a one alternative option, I’m thinking if I can write magical Regular expression which will find all anchor tags(A href) and retrieve its respective value (ie. /sites/subsitename/listname/documentname) from any given variable and append webappURL in front of its value then I can manually add missing webapplication URL to all hyperlinks from body value – again this is my thought, I don’t know whether it’s possible or not.

 

Any help/assistance is much appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance!
