Levenshtein Distance Algorithm-String Comparison

Custom Activity


The activity accepts two string and returns a similarity percentage in the type System.Single between two strings using Levenshtein Algorithm.



This could be essentially used when we need to compare a string with any sample data . For example the status of a request needs to be changed on basis of Approvers comment . The sample comment shared by the "the request is approved ", but the comment added by the approver is "The request raised is approved yesterday". In such cases the conventional string comparision methods will not work but the activity would give a similarity percentage .
