Removing Nintex eventreceivers from SharePoint list

I have a SharePoint 2010 list with a Nintex workflow attached. The workflow is never run automatically but only started from code..


The list have 3 standard Nintex eventreceivers:

ItemUpdating (Synchronous)

ItemUpdated (Synchronous)

ItemAdded (Synchronous)


The listitems are all synchronous and when a listitems is updated ItemUpdating and ItemUpdated will be run, but never run a workflow. This has performance issues on out environment as the listitems are updated very often in large batches and since the eventreceivers are synchronous they will deloy the thread.


Is it "safe" to remove the eventreceivers or set them to Asynchronous ?

What will be the impact of removeing them and will they be added again if I update the workflow or add another one?

Re: Removing Nintex eventreceivers from SharePoint list

Hi Bo Josephsen,
Yes its safe to refresh the Nintex Event receivers and delete them either using powershell or sharepoint manager. With Nintex event receivers they will be created again on the List once you create and publish a simple workflow with conditional start in the workflow settings page. I haven't seen any impact on refreshing the Nintex event reciever, please let us know if you did have any issue.

Hope that help
