Nintex Runtime error handling

Not applicable
2 0 2,290

Nintex do have custom actions  available to handle the runtime error in workflows actions and its often choose which one to use based on whether or not they have error handling, It looks  like 32 of the actions have error handling with around 90 not having error handling .

We can also write appropriate  custom error message for most of the available actions in the workflows and it  could be anything based on actions

  1. e.g 

  • Server is busy or not responding due to network issue
  • Unauthorized users  credential. 
  • Runtime execution error date not responding

Importantly Nintex does not have error handling capability available its limitation of Nintex workflow product.  But I would suggest you use “system defined error and action name “
