Get an Item From A Dictionary In SharePoint 2013 And Office 365 Using Nintex Workflows

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.


Configure:

  1. Dictionary: Choose the variable of a collection from where you will find an item.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
