Send Email Notification to AD group using Nintex Workflow

     Issue Overview

In Nintex Workflow, when user save a Nintex email notification actions with AD group in the “To” field , instead of getting a readable group name, there is something like that : c:0+.w|s-1-5-21-2108762092-1276444594-4162494950-47659 which corresponds to group name in claims format.


Method 1: Update Email Address under “External email address section “

  • Click on the Search button in the “To” field.
  • Add the email address under the “External email address section “
  • Then click “Add” and OK.

Method 2: This is a workaround approach in case Method 1 fails

  • ·         Grab a Regular Expression action to chop off the "c:0+.w|"
  • ·         Select the Replace text operation
  • ·         Replace the claims token and pipe delimiter with an empty string
  • ·         Save the result into a workflow variable called YourGroupSIDVariable
  • ·         Grab a Query LDAP action
  • ·         Drop in the LDAP query below
  • ·         Add sAMAccountName to the list of properties to retrieve from Active Directory
  • ·         Save the sAMAccountName to a workflow variable. This should give you the friendly name of the group.
  • ·         The LDAP query to use in the Query LDAP action is:
