I'm attempting to run the purge command below, and getting an NullReferenceException error. Does anyone have any tips on how to specify the URL so that it will work?
NWAdmin.exe -o PurgeWorkflowData -url https://selfservicecert.OurOrganization.ca/forms/requests/Finance/OT_Dev/Lists/Overtime_Callback_Dev... -lastActivityBeforeLocal 2020-06-18T00:00:00
The error I'm getting is:
Command line execution error: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.at Nintex.Workflow.Administration.ConfigurationDatabase.ReadConfigValue()
@abeaton Are you trying to purge a list or a site, that looks like a list url that would require a different parameter -listName (https://help.nintex.com/en-us/nintex2016/current/#sp2016/NWAdmin/PurgeWorkflowData.htm).
Thank you @leighburke, - that's a very helpful reference! I've tried using the workflow name instead, but am getting the same error... with and with quotes around the name.
NWAdmin.exe -o PurgeWorkflowData -workflowName "OC CB OT Approval Workflow" -lastActivityBeforeLocal 2020-06-18T00:00:00
NWAdmin.exe -o PurgeWorkflowData -workflowName OC CB OT Approval Workflow -lastActivityBeforeLocal 2020-06-18T00:00:00
I'm getting a set further an able to run the command now, - but getting a message saying: Command line execution error: Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED))
I can run commands like get-spsite, - what additional permissions might be required?
