Nintex issues while configuring Hybrid Search

We are currently using Nintex in our on-premises SharePoint 2013 farm. We are also currently configuring our Office 365 and SharePoint Online implementation.

As part of that effort, we are working on configuring hybrid search between on-prem and the cloud following these steps: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn720906.aspx


According to this article<https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Hybrid-picker-in-the-SharePoint-Online-admin-center-efce841...> there is some risk that the configuration will break the Workflow Manager, and there are some remediation scripts<https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4010011/provider-hosted-add-ins-stop-working-and-http-401-e...> that involve deleting and recreating the workflow manager proxy (additional information here<https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/beyondsharepoint/2016/09/15/considerations-when-deploying-sharep...>).


We would like to know if Nintex has configured hybrid search in a SharePoint farm running Nintex on-prem, and whether these configurations steps will cause any service disruption in the Nintex workflows. Does Nintex rely on SharePoint Workflow Manager or does it use its own workflow manager? Would deleting and recreating this proxy break any running workflows?

Re: Nintex issues while configuring Hybrid Search

Hello Daks,

I am not really an expert in setting up an hybrid environment, but would like to confirm that the on-premise Nintex 2013  version has no dependency with the workflow Manager, It uses the buildin SharePoint 2010 workflow engine.


The following is the reference from Installation Guide:




The Installation guide can be downloaded at: Installing Nintex Workflow 2013 and Nintex Forms 2013 

I would also request you to write to support@nintex.com  to understand more about about this topic.
