we are thinking of locking down the usage of Nintex Forms in our organisation to only allow site collection administrators to design and deploy Nintex forms.
We lock down Nintex workflow actions with AD groups - I was wondering if something similar is possible to lock down the usage of Nintex forms. Has anyone done anything like this already?
thanks in advance

I've had a play with this and the Nintex Forms ribbon button is disabled if the user has Read or Contribute access, so unless they need Edit access you could simply amend their permissions.
I was thinking more of configuration on the farm to hide - managing it with permissions is not going to work as some users will have full control across their sites.
Hello Cassy Freeman,
In lieu of farm-level configuration (and not wanting to alter permissions), you might consider using CSS or jQuery to hide Nintex Forms from users.
Nintex Forms is included in the SharePoint > List ribbon using a <DIV> with an ID of Nintex.Forms.Designer-Large. After escaping the periods (special characters), you can hide this option from the ribbon with the following CSS:
display: none !important;
If you were to setup rules based on the current users' group/permission you could make this modification client-side as the page loads.
Cassy, did this approach suit your needs? I would agree that CSS is a great approach. I'm just worried that it also removes the button from SC admins as well.
Maybe it is possible to remove the original button this way, but then create a Custom Action to add it back in, but with the necessary handler for the correct permissions. The bad side of this is that it will have to be deployed a site collection at a time.
