Welcome to an article on how to get an item from a Dictionary in SharePoint 2013 and Office 365 using Nintex Workflows. This article will display the action “Get an Item from a Dictionary” so that all my developer friends don’t have to spend much time and effort while using this function in their projects.
Let’s see the implementation of this functionality.
Create a list, Dev Testing.
Click on the List tab on the Top ribbon and click on Nintex Workflows.
You will see the following screen, to create a new workflow.
Click on “Create new workflow”.
You will come to the design phase of the Nintex workflows.
Add the action, “Get an Item from a Dictionary” either by right click on the workflow or by dragging and dropping from the left toolbox.
Now let’s configure it.
When you double click on the action the following screen opens up.
Dictionary: Choose the variable of a collection from where you will find an item.
Item name or path: Provide the name of the item or the path, you want to find from the values stored in the dictionary variable.
Output: Select a variable to store the output.
Now we have configured our workflow, let’s go and publish it to use it.
Click on Publish on the left corner of the ribbon of Nintex Designer.
