Nintex RPA release notes

Nintex RPA Central 2.2.0 and Nintex Bot 17.2.0: June 8, 2021

Nintex RPA Central 2.2.0 improvement and resolved issues

  • Improved performance stability and handling.

  • Unauthorized users are no longer able to access Nintex RPA Central pages. If an unauthorized user attempts to access a Nintex RPA Central page, they will receive a message stating that their access is denied.

  • When editing users, the role picklist is no longer truncated.

  • You can now run a botflow immediately after publishing it.

  • The Output File button is now disabled if an instance is terminated and no records were ran.

Nintex Bot 17.2.0 enhancements and resolved issues

Note: Windows Server 2012 is no longer supported in Nintex Bot. We recommend that you only run Nintex Bot on a client machine in Windows 10 or Windows 8.1. For more information, see System requirements.

  • A new library has been implemented to allow for connections to email servers that require higher security protocols (TLS 1.2).

  • Dataset field names can now include commas. If you include a comma in a dataset field, ensure that the entire field is enclosed in double quotes (") so that Nintex Bot interprets the field as one field and not separate fields.

  • The Go To Website action now correctly chooses the current tab in the current window (requires Nintex RPA Chrome Extension or above; for more information, see Download Files).

  • The Execute SQL action no longer overwrites a data file when the “Overwrite” option is not selected.

  • Nintex Bot no longer fails to find the library used to connect to MySQL databases.

  • Files are now correctly deleted when you use the Delete File action with a wildcard in the filename and you also select to “Include Subfolders.”

  • You no longer receive an error stating that the Nintex RPA Chrome Extension is out of date when you target Microsoft Edge.

  • Nintex Bot no longer fails to target a newly opened Microsoft Excel workbook when using the Create Workbook action.

  • Setting data fields with values that contain apostrophes will no longer fail.
