Get Address List activity

The Get AddressList activity retrieves all attributes from the specified Exchange address list.

This activity implements the Microsoft Exchange Get-AddressList command.

To access this activity in the workflow editor, select the Custom tab, and then navigate to Custom Activities > Exchange > Address List.
Note: This activity replaces an Exchange activity by the same name available in releases prior to Geneva. If you have a workflow created in a previous version that uses the deprecated activity, your workflow will continue to work normally after upgrading to Geneva. However, all new workflows must use the custom version of this activity. This activity was built with the Powershell activity designer, which gives workflow administrators the ability to store input and output variables in the databus.
