After uninstalling Nintex Workflow, SharePoint shows errors for list template '5001'

Issue

After uninstalling Nintex Workflow, certain operations in SharePoint may present the following error in the ULS logs.

"Feature '0561d315-d5db-4736-929e-26da142812c5' for list template '5001' is not installed in this farm. The operation could not be completed."


 

Resolution

Note: The following script was provided by Microsoft and should be used with caution as it will delete the following Nintex libraries across the entire Web Application.

/NintexWorkflows
/NintexSnippets
/NintexTemplates

You will lose any published Nintex Workflows, Workflow Templates, and Workflow Snippets. Only use this script on a Web Application if Nintex Workflow is uninstalled and there is no concern with this data loss.



$webapp = Get-SPWebapplication "WebAppURL" 
$sites = $webapp.sites 
foreach ($site in $sites) 

$webs = $site.Allwebs 

foreach($web in $webs) 

#$web.Lists | ? {$_.BaseTemplate -eq "5001"} | select title, rootfolder 
$ls = $web.Lists | ? {$_.BaseTemplate -eq "5001"} 
foreach($l in $ls) 

write-host "$($l.title) | $($web.url)" 
$l.delete()
