I want to update multiple items in a list with a value from another list using SP Designer 2013 workflow. How to achieve this? I tried it using HTTP web service option in 2013 workflow but couldn't understand it and get it working.

  • If I add the call http web service within a loop, call http service processes only the 1st item in the loop. Is this expected behaviour?
