    • Fetch attachment type: file from salesforce records

      Hi Guys,

      As of now using "Get file from a record" in NWC able to get collection of files of type : attachment. It would be nice if this can fetch attachment type: file also from salesforce. I guess in future salesforce releases the type:attachment may not be supported moving forward to Lightning in salesforce.

      Let me know if you need any more info.

        • Add Oracle Connector to Nintex Workflow Cloud

          Will you please add an Oracle Connector to Nintex Workflow Cloud that would permit workflows to log in to an Oracle database as a user and perform tasks that the user is authorized to perform (e.g., Create, Read, Update, Delete, Select) operations? Thank you.

          • Have more than 4 controls across in design

            When placing fields and I have 4 controls, but I may need to change some out but can't due to only having 4. EG>>

            City, Country, State, Zip Code
            If country equals Australia I want the drop down with Australian states
            If the country equals USA I want a drop down that only has USA states, But I can't because I can't design the form to include all the different State fields I require for my rules.

            • Connection Error After Exiting Connection Creation

              Currently when you cancel creating a new connection from within the Connections Manager, there is always a message that there was a connection error: "An error has occurred with creating your connection. Please try again later."

              While the connection was not created, there also was not really an error, so this messaging should probably be updated to reflect what actually happened.

                • NWC SQL Queries - retrieve multiple columns

                  The SQL connectors allow a designer to select a single column for select queries. Many times we wish to select multiple columns. Can these actions be modified so we can add an unlimited number of columns?

                      Thanks for the suggestion. Is there a particular reason you are restoring the older version of the workflow? I get the usefulness of the feature request – however I’m keen to understand the motivation – we may uncover other features or alternatives and that is what I’m keen on exploring.

                    • support of complex math function

                      support more complex methods of math operations, e.g.
                      (varible1 * variable2) / variable3
                      sum(var1, var2, var3, var4)
                      other functions such as product(), mod(), power(), sqrt(), etc.

                        • Allow comparison between Integer variables and decimals

                          If I define two variables, X (as Integer) and Y (as Decimal) I should be able to perform basic math comparisons between them. But NWC does not allow these variables to be compared in a Condition action.

                          • Capture of Request Content in workflow variable

                            External start workflow required the "Request content (parameters)" to be provided in the body of the REST call, capturing the "Request content" into a workflow variable, allows capture of additional data that are not defined as Start Variable(s) of the workflow. This capability supports External Start workflow in Nintex Workflow Cloud to be used as a "Callback URL" end point. This end point with the "Request Content" captured, supports the parsing of returned data and actions to be taken against the returned data.

                            External Start workflow if capable of capturing Request Content is important as it supports action to be…

                            • REST endpoints for external system to query Nintex Workflow Cloud

                              e.g.
                              REST endpoint to get list of workflow task
                              REST api to approve or update a workflow task
                              support of REST api is important when external systems needs to integrates with NWC.

                              e.g. external system calls external start workflow, returning the workflow instance id. External system calls api with instance id to get the workflow status, etc.

                                Hi KK, what external hosts systems are you planning to integrate with?

                                In addition, what are your expectations around authorization and authentication when it comes to consuming these REST endpoints if we were to make them available?

                                Thanks.

                                We need to have a more complete approach to manipulating dates.

                                Scenario: External start receives a date value to a date field. Another systems (CRM Query Record action for example) take the date in another format.

                                Issue: Can't pass the variable to the Salesforce Query Record action as you can't get the date in the right format

                                Potential short term fix: Create a string to date action - we pass the date to the external start variable (string), maipulate string into right format, use 'string to date' action to set a date variable in a format that the Salesforce query…

                                • Allow changes to Start Event

                                  Once the workflow is saved with configured Start Event (e.g. Web Form), you are not allowed to change the Start Event for that workflow to other event such as External Start Event. I have a workflow started with Web Form, and the workflow grown to a size, now I wanted to change the Start Event to External Start, I found not way to do it.

                                  Even I have the workflow exported, and created a new workflow and imported the workflow that I have exported. The event still stick to the Public Web Form....

                                  • Call a web service action with credential/token from existing connector

                                    Most of the REST API endpoints required to supply Authorization: Bearer as part of the Header, if a different version of the "call a web service" action is provided with the capability to make use of the Connector(s) in Nintex Workflow Cloud, that will open up the opportunity of all available endpoints of the external system to which we are integrating with.

                                    e.g. All the Actions of the Sharepoint online covers only few endpoints of the Sharepoint Online. The proposed version of "call a web service" will make the Sharepoint Connector to be used to access all the available Sharepoint…

                                      Hi KK, thanks for the suggestion. As we’ve recently released Nintex Xtensions, why not build a Connector using the Nintex Xtensions Framework?

                                      This makes the action much more reusable and easier to configure. Or is your request to do with something else?

                                      Thanks!

                                      I would like to see graphical view of workflow progress like OnPrem.

                                        Send push notifications to user's browser once a workflow instance has finished processing. User might be busy on other tabs, just notify him through push notifications.

                                          Can we have the default filter of Instances set to all instances? and have the Search/Filter paner minimized/collapsed, only if we want to filter the instance view to expand the Filter Panel/Area/Section?
