    Why do user accounts have the "i:0#.w|" tag?

    Overview

    When referencing a user account in a Nintex Workflow a "i:0#.w|" tag is being added at the start of the username.

    Platform

    All SharePoint On-Premise

    Resolution

    This occurs when the web application in which you're working is using Claims-Based Authorization.

    The code "i:0#.w|" indicates that the security provider is Windows.

    Forms Based Authorization uses "i:0#.f|"

    The tag can be stripped using a Regular Expression.
