Nintex workflow not continue after "Pause For" action

Workflow not continue to run after a "Pause For" action.

"Pause For" action is configure to pause for 2 minutes but after 2 days still not completed yet. No error been thrown.

Have other items running the same workflow but do not have the same issue.

Thank you.

Re: Nintex workflow not continue after "Pause For" action

Nintex support advised this may due to performance issue caused by huge number of workflow history record which should be less than 5000 records. Checked and confirmed that the number of records was exceed 5000 but the workflow still not continue after purged the records.

This might be the root cause but there is no way to resume the workflow after pause. Terminate and restart the workflow is the only work around.

Hi, have you seen this issue recur since cleaning out your workflow history list?  I am seeing a similar issue with one of my workflows, but the workflow history list associated with the workflow is below 5k records, so I'm still troubleshooting. Thanks!

Re: Nintex workflow not continue after "Pause For" action

I'm facing the same issues o SP2016 + Nintex 2016. I've been restarting SPTimerV4 process many times, but no "ad-hoc" results: after I cleaned my list, restarted the process, then after another minute (the pause was for 1 minute) my workflow unpaused and continue. I don't know how to permanently fix it

Anyone?

Tomasz
