Nintex RPA release notes

Nintex RPA Central 2.0.4 and Nintex Bot 17.0.5: April 7, 2021

Nintex product releases downloads


This release requires Nintex RPA Central 2.0. If you have not upgraded to Nintex RPA Central 2.0, Nintex recommends planning a maintenance time window to:

  1. Cancel all botflow instances.

  2. Unpublish all botflows that are scheduled to run within your planned maintenance window. You can also back up or export key botflows.

  3. Upgrade Nintex RPA Central and Nintex Bots.

This release also 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 1.X, and you are upgrading to Nintex RPA Central 2.0, the botflow will stop working. You can let Dataset jobs complete first before upgrading to Nintex RPA Central 2.0.
