Regular Expression to Get All Characters After a Specific Character in Nintex Workflow

You can get all the characters after a specific character in a string using Nintex Workflow.

Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Insert a Regular Expression action into your Nintex Workflow.
  2. Configure it with the following settings:
    1. Pattern = (^.*?(?=-)-)  where the “-” is the character (replace both “-” with your desired character)
    2. Replacement text = Keep this empty
    3. Input text = Insert your text string (you can insert a reference to data in a list column or workflow variable)
    4. Store result in = Text workflow variable
  3. You can then use the workflow variable as you need it.

Here are some examples from using this Regular Expression:

String Regular Expresssion Result
abc123-xyz456 (^.*?(?=-)-) xyz456
abc123;xyz456 (^.*?(?=;);) xyz456
abc123?xyz456 (^.*?(?=[?])[?]) xyz456
