Workflow fails to publish as the column 'NintexWorkflowDescription' does not exist

Issue

When publishing a workflow the following error appears : soap:ServerServer was unable to process request. ---> Column 'NintexWorkflowDescription' does not exist. It may have been deleted by another user.

 

Resolution

The NintexWorkflowDescription column is missing from the hidden NintexWorkflow Library.
Navigate to https://siteCollectionURL/NintexWorkflows in a web browser to view the hidden NintexWorkflows Library.
Go to the Library settings and view the columns.
If the column NintexWorkflowDescription does not exist add it as a single line of text data type.

If no Nintex workflows have ever been published on this site, as an alternative to the above the hidden Library can be deleted. When a new workflow is published the Library will be re-created and should contain any missing columns. 

 

Error Code

soap:ServerServer was unable to process request. ---> Column 'NintexWorkflowDescription' does not exist. It may have been deleted by another user.
