Nintex RPA LE release notes

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


If you are upgrading from a Nintex RPA Central version prior to 2.0 and a Nintex Bot version prior to version 17.3.0, 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 2.14.0 and Nintex Bot 17.15.0: February 7, 2024

Nintex RPA Central 2.14.0 resolved issue and enhancement

  • Scheduled bots now run on the correct dates, per the schedule configuration. The Nintex RPA Central Scheduler has been re-architected to better handle all schedule iterations. For more information on scheduling botflows, see Configure a botflow.

Nintex Bot 17.15.0 enhancements, resolved issues, and known issue


  • Improvements in the Nintex RPA Chrome Extension prevent the Select Item and Search actions from failing and timing out.

  • A new Ignore Invisible Elements legacy targeting rule ensures that Nintex Bot only considers visible elements (elements that can be seen) and disregards all invisible elements (elements that have "visible:hidden" and/or "display:none" style properties) during action execution. When selected, this setting disregards all cached/invisible elements in the dom as these elements can be the original target (the target element used to create the action). Selecting this setting can improve reliability during the action execution when interacting with elements that look identical but are actually overlaid. Note that this feature is only available for targeting using Google Chrome technology (Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge). For more information, see Build Pane.

  • Two new Send Value action settings allow you to adjust the automatic speed of sent values. The Keystroke delay setting sets the automatic delay of the speed of the keyboard in milliseconds. The Use Virtual Key Codes setting allows applications to receive the physical key on which a user strikes on the keyboard to produce the results on the screen. These features are useful when you have a target that is sensitive to how and what is being sent to it and it will block what it does not recognize, or it will erroneously acknowledge valid input as invalid.

  • Improved Unlocker. For more information, see Unlock.

  • Improved smart targeting for emulators.

  • The Get Info action is enhanced for Chrome Elements to allow users to get the Elem's ID, Elem's Class, and Elem's Name.

  • Improved UIA targeting with the Mouse Sequence action.

Resolved issues

  • You no longer receive an unnecessary error if the user requires local admin rights for an Unlock action.

  • You no longer receive an error when using variables in the Resume action.

  • Recent botflows are now correctly sorted and listed in order on the Home Screen.

  • Botlfow imports are now saved to the correct botflow record even when the botflow name already exists in the Nintex RPA Central database.

  • You no longer receive a misleading "Database does not contain records error" when importing data results with duplicate field names in different cases.

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.
