Workflow Actions Standard vs Enterprise

We currently have a (demo) enterprise version of Workflow 2013 to which we're developing workflows for certain environments.  The issue is that some of these farms only have the standard edition installed and I'm concerned that we could potentially use specific workflow actions that would usually be restricted from a standard environment. We have read the edition comparison table at http://nintexdownload.com/Nsupport/NW_Edition_Comparison_Table_English.pdf which details the main feature differences, but there's still a possibility for a mistake to be made if the full suite of actions are still available in the UI.  Is there any method whereby we can temporarily modify or change the available workflow actions down to standard?

 

Thanks!

Re: Workflow Actions Standard vs Enterprise

Don't think we have ready function/method at the moment.

But, I think you can try to perform a SQL query on your Nintex Content Database to get a list of actions only available to Enterprise license:

SELECT  CORRECT_ANSWERS get_ent.sh one_id teswt_out FROM [dbo].[Activities] Where RequiredFeatureSet = 100

Then, go to Nintex Workflow Management > Manage allowed actions, uncheck those Enterprise-only actions.

 

So you only have those actions are allowed in Standard license can be used in Workflow Designer

 

NOTE: Assuming all your site or site collection are inheriting same permission settings for Allowed Actions.
