Nintex Mobile supports three ways of authentication:
|Sign in page for Windows Phone||Sign in page for iPhone|
|Sign in page for Windows 8||Sign in page for Android|
A Corporate account is used when connecting directly to your SharePoint environment over a VPN, or when your SharePoint server is available on the Internet. If you know the URL of your SharePoint server, and you have a secure connection to it, you may want to use your corporate account for signing in to Nintex Mobile and access to forms and tasks assigned to you.
To sign in with a corporate account, you will need to provide:
If you do not know the above details, contact your IT Administrator.
If you use Nintex Live as a gateway to your SharePoint server, you do not need to specify the SharePoint URL. Instead, you will need a Microsoft account to sign into Nintex Mobile. Nintex Mobile uses Nintex Live to talk to your SharePoint server over a secure connection via the Azure service bus. This is achieved securely, and does not require a VPN connection.
Your Microsoft account is the email address and password used to sign in to services such as Windows 8 devices, as well as Skype, OneDrive, Xbox LIVE, or Outlook.com. If you use an email address and password to sign in to these services, you have a Microsoft account.
If you do not have a Microsoft account, you can sign up for a new one before signing in to Nintex Mobile. Before using your Microsoft account to sign in to Nintex Mobile, you must register your account with Nintex Live.
To register your account with Nintex Live, please execute the following steps, which will guide you through the process to associate your Microsoft account with the account you use to sign in to Share:
Once the registration is complete, you can use your Microsoft account for signing in to Nintex Live and access forms and tasks assigned to you.
An Office 365 account is used when connecting the Nintex Mobile Apps to an Office 365 tenancy that is using Nintex Forms for Office 365. To sign in to an Office 365 tenancy, you will need to:
Please note, the tenancy URL should be the address of a site within your Office 365 environment that you have access to and that the Nintex Forms for Office 365 app has been installed within. Examples of valid URLs include https://tenantname.sharepoint.com/sites/sitename or https://tenantname.sharepoint.com.
2. Click Next, once the tenant URL has been validated you will then be directed to the Office 365 Organizational Account sign in page, where you can complete the sign-in to Office 365.
A trial account can be created for evaluating the Nintex Mobile apps without provisioning a SharePoint site with Nintex Forms and Nintex Workflow.
On activation of a trial account, a unique username and password are assigned to you to connect to an existing demo environment based on SharePoint 2013. You can then use the Corporate Account method to authenticate into the demo environment provisioned for you by Nintex.
A trial account is valid for 30 days from the time of activation.
At a school Nintex mobile app authentication using corporate account works fine on campus (on the network)
However when external to the network, SharePoint is published using a forms based login using Microsoft TMG. (A very common scenario). The authentication does not work via TMG.
Can you confirm if this is a known issue?
Currently, authentication in Nintex Mobile can be obtained via a direct connection to SharePoint (Corporate account), or by using a Microsoft account associated with a SharePoint instance. Form-based authentication is not currently supported. The workaround is to use Microsoft account as a way to sign in to Nintex Mobile when a direct access to SharePoint is not available.
When you sign in with a Microsoft Account will the people picker control in Nintex Mobile still be able to search/resolve names from the server?
My SP environment is not available externally. I can use live feature to publish forms anonymously but most probably cannot use Nintex Mobile Apps feature. How can I disable it from the User menu drop down?
Hi Kapil Joshi,
Actually you can use Microsoft Account to access your Forms and Tasks even though your SP environment is not available externally. To do so you need to setup Nintex Live-Mobile connection.
About your question... What feature do you exactly want to disable?
OK, to remove that option:
This will remove Nintex Mobile Apps option from the menu.
