Can we associate Nintex Workflow to a specific Content Type ?

Jump to solution

Hi,

 

I was just wondering if we can associate a Nintex Workflow to a content type like we can do with SharePoint Workflows ?

 

This can avoid the extra efforts of re-applying the workflows in every library. Any change can we done at one place and will reflect across the lists/libraries where the Content Type is referred.

 

Thanks,

Nutan

Thank You Kapil, I found the stuff while navigating toward Nintex UI in SharePoint site.  But I have a question regarding the child content types.

In case I create a Content Type and then created n number of Child Content Types inheriting from the Parent, if I associate the Workflow on Parent CT, will it also run on Child CT ?

I doubt on that. Not sure if someone has checked this scenario.

Thanks,

Nutan

Hi Nutan Sharma ,

It would behave the same way as SPD workflow. If you have the parent content type and added a workflow to it, then in the Content Type Settings > Workflow Settings > enable this option: Add this workflow to all content types that inherit from this content type?

When you create the child content type, the Nintex workflow will come attached to it. Hope this helps.

*And I have tested this scenario.
