Nintex Xtensions
Development Guide

Nintex Xtensions™ is Nintex's extensibility framework that allows you to define your own custom connectors for use in the Nintex Workflow Platform. This guide takes you through the process of defining a custom connector and importing and configuring it in the Xtensions portal for use in workflow designs.

NOTE: Currently, the framework only supports the design of custom actions. Creating starting events with custom connectors is not yet available.
