I am a very beginner with workflows and I am facing my first problem:
I want to run a backup for all subclients for a specific client beside a subclient “test” via workflow.
So in this example at the beginning of that workflow I manually choose a client.
This client has serveral subclients (e.g. “data1”, “data2” and “test”).
The discover of DataAgent, BackupSet and all Subclients works fine, but with which activity in the Workflow Designer can I exclude the pattern “test” in the list of subclients?
I’ve tried the “RemoveFromList” but without any success (or maybe I used it the wrong way).
Do you have a clue?

Awesome, I’m glad you got it going!
thx, I tried this, now it works.
I take the output of Subclient, add it to a list (by AddToList) and then remove the item (by RemoveFromList). Last step is to create a ForEach Loop in which I start a backup for each subclient.
Your workflow action RemoveFromList is out of context and not doing what you expect.
Your input is not actually a List. It’s expecting a List created by the AddToList action.
You might see if you can loop through the Subclient output to create a List, and then loop through that List for kicking off the backup jobs.
yes, of course, here it is.
Are you willing to share the workflow so I can import it in my lab?
