Some of you may be using the "Set Workflow Status" action in Nintex Workflow, which allows you to create custom workflow statuses (statii?).

I just had a need to find out what status codes sharePoint thinks are available for my workflow, since there seemed to be a mismatch between the status I was setting, and the status that was appearing in the list item.

I created the following script to help me with tracking down this issue.

At this stage, it only handles List workflows, but if anyone has a need for it to handle State workflows also, let me know and i'll tweak it.

List Workflow Status Codes

# .\NWStatusCodes.ps1 -url "http://..." -list "listname" -workflow "workflowname"


$site = Get-SPSite $siteurl
$web = $site.RootWeb;
$list = $web.Lists[$listname];
$statusChoices = $list.WorkflowAssociations.GetAssociationByName($workflowname,[System.Globalization.CultureInfo]::CurrentCulture).BaseTemplate.GetStatusChoices($web);

$countChoices = $statusChoices.count;

Write-Host 'Status Choice count - ' $countChoices;

$i = 0;

while($i -lt $countChoices)
  Write-Host $i ' - ' $statusChoices[$i];

When I ran the above script on my list and workflow, I received the following :
