I have a Repeating Group of contacts that is being populated with an external API. I can save this data to my Type (table) of Contacts. Yeah!
However, I want to prevent the workflow from creating a new contact if it already exists. I’ve tried many approaches, with my latest failed attempt of filtering the Repeating Group like this screen shot.
Anyone know how I can check if the Current List Field already exists? (in my example, I have an ID field that is the same in both the API and my Contact Type table.
Any help is GREATLY appreciated,
Have a look at an advanced filter (it is at the bottom of the list).
You can probably do it so can say “search for testusers testid” doesn’t contain This Id.
@NigelG thanks for the suggestion. For some reason, this advanced filter didn’t seem to work on the repeating group as a filter. The records continued to load. But, your suggestion did help me get to a final resolution. I moved back over to the API Endpoint workflow and added this advanced filter there. Now, success!
Here’s a screen shot of what the resolution looked like in case this helps others.
