We recently ran into an issue where a Java VM application (i.e. FIS/IBS/eManager) would abort when using RPA. Upon further research we found out that Java memory management is an ongoing challenge across the board and needs IT assistance to tune Java applications to function in a scalable manner. Once the customer upgraded to the latest java version release and worked with their IT department to optimize memory and CPU utilization, the problem was solved, and the application would no longer abort.

RPA Central v2.0 will be available in the next few weeks. This version will also need an upgrade of all your Nintex Bots to v17.0. Nintex Bot v17.0 will be available at the same time as RPA Central 2.0. You can upgrade your user bots or virtual machines through the User Management page on RPA Central. You can also upgrade your bot on the same machine that RPA Central is on from the Bots page. The RPA Central interface will also provide an alert as a form of a reminder to update any remaining bot not on v17. We encourage you to allocate a service maintenance time to upgrade RPA Central to v2.0 and all the bots to v17.0. Let the existing in-flight jobs to complete, cancel scheduled jobs in the maintenance window and then upgrade RPA Central and all Bots. For the botflows that were scheduled for that period, you can alternatively run them after or wait for the next scheduled run.
When RPA Central 2.0 is launched next month, you may notice that the Dataset processing functionality within RPA Central is missing. Yes, that is correct! Based on customer research we realized that the experience can be vastly improved and therefore support for a new Dataset functionality is queued up for post release. The new Dataset feature will have a much better user experience and improved functionality. In the meantime, if you need the Dataset functionality in RPA Central, you have the following options:Upgrade to RPA Central 2.0 and process your Dataset at the Bot level, by dividing large files into smaller files and running the datasets at the bot level. Stay on RPA Central 1.4.X versions
Hello,We recently installed Nintex RPA on one of our servers to allow Hosting the license Centrally.We got our RPA Central URL setup, got gateway installed. But are having some issues: 1. We cannot access our Nintex RPA Central URL on the Server we installed on. Everytime we try access that URL, we get prompted for User Credentials. We put in credentials, and try that about 5 times, then it appears it worked, but RPA Central Never Loads. However, if access that RPA Central URL on my local machine connected to the same Domain, I can access just fine. Screenshot attached. 2. When trying to add the Nintex RPA as a connection in Workflow Cloud, we get a CreateConnectionFailed message. Screenshot Attached 3. Get error when we add our Nintex Central RPA Url to the Nintex RPA Client. "Nintex RPA could not reach the configured Nintex RPA Central URL. Screenshot attached.

In December, the overall navigation within RPA Central will be changed to provide a unified and seamless experience within the Nintex product platform. In the new version and going forward, the right hand side Action panel, that you may be familiar with in NWC, will be utilized to provide a consistent experience in editing and configuring your botflows. This includes assigning bots(s), scheduling and publishing a Botflow™ all from one action panel, instead of three separate pages in the current RPA Central. In the new RPA Central, we are also improving your experience in setting repeating schedules for your Botflows™. As an example, you can set your days of the week repeating schedules by selecting a time, the day(s) of the week and setting the repeating interval, all from the same place.The Jobs function will also be retired. The Jobs function was limited, did not provide any added benefit and Botflows can just as easily fill that role and more through the action panel. Through
We are excited to inform you of an upcoming Nintex RPA Central 2.0 release that will deliver a new user interface as well as improved feature functionality. We have redesigned RPA Central to make it much more intuitive and streamlined to help you manage your RPA Botflows™ more efficiently. The new user interface will be similar to our best-in-class Nintex Workflow automation, making for a more seamless experience.In addition to a more contemporary interface you will also enjoy improved feature functionality including more configuration and scheduling capabilities. With the new RPA Central, you will be able to configure, schedule, and publish a Botflow using a single window, where previously it required navigation to multiple pages. This is a pre-release announcement and more updates will be posted throughout the month.
I am a long-term user of Foxtrot RPA, but have never used it to automate functions in the Fiserv Premier system using their Navigator user interface. My new employer uses Premier/Navigator as their core banking system and I will need to be writing RPA automation for it going foward. Does anyone have any documentation of "best practices" or recommendations for using RPA with Fiserv Premier/Navigator?
Hey all, I need to go to a certain screen of a website, however, to get to this screen you have to click on a tab, which creates a drop down box of links that you can click on, and then click on the link you want. The manual process looks somewhat like this: Hover mouse of 'Inquiry' tab > scroll down drop box > click on link When replicated in Foxtrot it misses the link I want to click on for some reason. Also, when you click on the link, it doesnt create a new webpage with a different URL, so you can't bypass this by just coding the bot to go straight to that URL. Anyone have any advice on how to get through this?
Has anyone upgraded RPA to 16.6.1 and had issues with the open data step? It works as expected when you run the bot manually. However, when launching from RPA Central the bot stalls out at the step. We upgraded from 16.5.5 to 16.6.1. We tried disabling, then re-creating the open data step. Still results in the same stall. We are working with support, but was wondering if anyone else had experienced this. Thank you for your time, Kyle
I'm attempting to setup a Botflow to interact with a REST service. When passing the initial credentials to the logon endpoint, the service will send an authentication token in the response header (which is different then the response content). Is there a way to capture the header response in the REST task? I see the content and status code can be saved, but not the header.I took a quick glance at the Workflow product and see that in it's "Call a web service" task it's got an option for the response header... just need the same thing for RPA.Thanks!
Hello!I'm trying to set filter for several columns in Excel workbook. The first action "Set Filter" works good, but the second action "Set Filter" for another column clean all my table and disable selection maded by first action "Set Filter". What should I do for multiple column filter? Thank you!
Nintex will no longer add net new functionality to v15 or older versions of Foxtrot. Support for bugs or security fixes will continue. This may include bugs or security fixes related to existing features or capabilities. New functionality will be added to v16 and releases can be found here under Nintex RPA tab. .
We were upgraded to RPA Central recently so now all designers can edit or run botflows. We used to manage this by network access and keeping the scripts in the specific network locations for specific users. What is the best way to restrict designer access for specific botflows on RPA Central?
Has anyone found a good change management tool for RPA (Foxtrot)? This has always been a lacking issue when it was Enablesoft. There is nothing preventing scripts from being changed as long as the end user has permission. I want to be able to know what changes from version to version for my teams scripts. As we built out our scripts to run automatically instead of manual kick off this would be a big win for our risk team. Maybe this could be an enhancement, but from a control/risk standpoint, this is where RPA is failing. Any thoughts out there?
