Nintex RPA release notes

Follow this page and the Nintex RPA Community blog to stay updated on product release information.

Important: 

If you are upgrading from a Nintex RPA Central version prior to 2.0 and a Nintex Bot version prior to version 17.3, Nintex recommends planning a maintenance time to: 

  1. Terminate all botflow instances.

  2. Unpublish all botflows that are scheduled to run within your planned maintenance time window. For more information, see Edit a botflow in Nintex RPA Central. You can also back up or export key botflows. For more information, see Backup and restore and Botflow Menu.

  3. Upgrade Nintex RPA Central. For more information, see Install Nintex RPA Central.

  4. Upgrade Nintex Bots. For more information, see Install and configure a Nintex Bot.

The Nintex RPA Central 2.0 release does not include support for processing datasets in Nintex RPA Central. However, you can still process datasets with Nintex Bots. If you have a job with a dataset that was configured in Nintex RPA Central, and you are upgrading to Nintex RPA Central 2.0, the botflow will stop working. You can let the dataset job complete first before upgrading to Nintex RPA Central 2.0 or you can upgrade to Nintex RPA Central 2.1 or above (recommended).

Nintex RPA Central 2.12.0 and Nintex Bot 17.12.0: February 8, 2023

Nintex RPA Central 2.12.0

  • General improvements and bug fixes.

Nintex Bot 17.12.0 improvements, resolved issues, and known issue

Improvements

  • You can no longer run the Set Mode action in tiny mode. Previously, running this action in tiny mode resulted in unreliable communication between Nintex Bot and Nintex RPA Central.

  • A new Chrome Request Timeout override in the botflow Settings allows you to lengthen the timeout time for websites that slow down the JavaScript engine in the browser.

  • You now have the ability to enable smart targeting rules. This feature allows you to manually change the order and priority in which selectors are used, manually edit the selector, turn on/off bridged tables, and manually ignore a selector. For more information, see Build Pane.

  • Improved diagnostic reporting.

Resolved issues

  • Botflows no longer stop and Nintex Bot no longer becomes unresponsive when executing the Open Data action. Additionally, to help diagnosis issues when running the Open Data action, you can now select an error handling option (Run error task, Stop on error, Ignore errors); the default option for new actions is Run error task.

  • You can now successfully target Google Chrome. Be sure to install the updated Nintex RPA Chrome Extension to take advantage of this fixed issue and other targeting improvements in Google Chrome. This updated Nintex RPA Chrome Extension is Nintex RPA's first Manifest v3-compliant extension.

  • The Unlock action no longer fails when Credentials are populated by the Set Credential action, which is populated through a variable.

  • You can now save email attachments from senders. Previously, you could not save email attachments that had unsupported characters in the filename.

  • List lookups embedded within formulas now function properly.

  • The gear icon is now visible, allowing you to successfully change your Nintex RPA Central URL in Nintex Bot during the installation process.

  • Formulas, including nested ones, now work correctly.

  • Dataset schema fields are now configured correctly.

  • You can now successfully retrieve emails from a shared Microsoft Exchange Online email account that uses full OAuth authentication. For more information, see Email Accounts.

  • You can now successfully execute a Move Highlight action on a bridged table.

Known issue

  • Boxing may not work correctly in Google Chrome when targeting the Print dialog with UIA on Windows Server 2019. We recommend upgrading to Windows Server 2022, as it has performed very well in our internal tests and does not exhibit this issue. Windows Server 2022 also provides you with improved performance and speed.
