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 2.10.0 and Nintex Bot 17.10.0: September 15, 2022

Nintex RPA Central 2.10.0 improvements

Improvements

  • Improved error messages and troubleshooting information to help you quickly resolve access and connection issues of bot clients.

Nintex Bot 17.10.0 new features, improvements, resolved issues, and known issues

New features

  • Ability to set up Gmail accounts with full OAuth authentication. For more information, go to Email accounts. For information on IMAP settings to receive email from Gmail accounts with full OAuth authentication, go to Email actions.

  • Ability to force a click action even if the control is disabled. Allowing a click when the control is disabled overrides the click behavior for UIA targets.

  • An Active Tab URL option is now available to use with the Get Info action for Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge.

Improvements

  • Improved speed and performance.

  • Optimized performance for targeting Google Chrome tables using selectors.

  • Improved UIA targeting.

  • Improved validation checks in the Execute SQL action form to reduce timeout errors.

  • Improved error messages in the Data Wizard.

  • Nintex Bot will now send a click even if the Google Chrome target cannot be given input focus.

Resolved issues

  • The RightOf Formula action now works correctly.

  • Corrected a Formula parameter parsing bug in the Formula builder.

  • Corrected the Open data action so that it runs the correct repeat settings, even when the settings are changed while a botflow is running.

  • The Avoid Conflicts option now works correctly in the Rename file action.

  • You no longer get an error when importing data from Microsoft Azure SQL while Nintex Bot is checking for the number of rows. Previously, you received an error when Nintex Bot instead checked for an error condition and then reattempted to run the query.

  • Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome now communicate correctly with Nintex Bot when using sessions with the same username.

Known issues

  • If you start two or more botflows from Nintex RPA Central or Nintex Workflow Cloud on the same Nintex Bot and then you close the Nintex Bot after the first botflow has finished running, but before the second queued botflow has started, the second queued botflow will remain unresponsive in a queued state. Currently, to resolve this issue, you must terminate the botflow that remains in a queued state.

  • 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.
