I have already searched and checked doc, there was not much information about sharepoint, so I have posted

Hi @rajat_dhammi,

Did you find a way ?

hi @gilles.b
yes, i found a way, it might not be the best, but is working.
What I did is…
Inside sharepoint appication scope, i first get list items, its op is Array of dictionary, System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary<System.String, System.Object>
I loop inside, for each (not for each row) with Type Argument as System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary<System.String, System.Object>
and get hyperlinkURL, which is object type.
I serialize that object and convert it to string.
But that str var has alot of data like Description, Url, TypeId etc. (In sharepoint there’s url address only)
With help of regex i extracted the URL which i want and it worked :slight_smile: :mechanical_arm:

Edit: Please elaborate on the serialize object part. I got an object with ‘Get from dicitionary’.
