I cannot copy a udf from one environment to another

I cannot copy a uda from one environment to another.  There are no other udas listed in the Nintex manager but when I try to import one; I receive this error:

User Defined Action already exists.This User Defined Action already exists in a subsite.

Re: I cannot copy a udf from one environment to another

Hi Michael!

would you run this SQL query on the Nintex Config DB on your SQL server and see if the UDA action was created before in another site:

-- note my Nintex config DB called NW2013DB -- so replace this DB name with your DB name

SELECT *  FROM [NW2013DB].[dbo].[UserDefinedActions]

then see if the UDA in question is duplicated in other sites. paste a screensshot of the SQL result so we can investigate.

Re: I cannot copy a udf from one environment to another

Hello Majid,

I'm having the same issue after backup/restore of a site collection (root site containing UDAs on the site level) to a different environment.

After querying the database for UDAs what would be the next step to proceed?

Cheers
