Nintex Workflow Structure in our application:-
1.There are 180 site collections and around 80K sub-sites across the site collection.
2.180 SharePoint content database are mapped with 8 Nintex content databases.
3.All the Nintex workflows are Site Collection Reusable workflow and published in site collection level.
4.Currently version, Nintex Workflow 2013 (3.1.10.0)  International,
5.Application has structured content type in each site collection level and attached the Nintex workflow in parent content type.
6.Child content types are attached with SharePoint library. We have 5 SharePoint library with attached 100+ content type in each sub-site level and each document upload workflow triggered.
7.Workflow started on new document upload request (Start Options:-Creating a new item will start this workflow.)
8.Average daily documents upload count is around ? 5 to 6K.

 

Steps to create a new site collection in our application:-
•Create bank Content Database
•Back Up existing site collection using below script:-
•Backup-SPSite -Identity $SiteCollectionToExportURL -Path $ExportPath -Confirm:$false
•Mapped newly created SharePoint Content Db to Nintex Content Db.
•Restore to new site collection using below script:-
•Restore-SPSite -Identity $ImportWeb -Path $ImportPath -ContentDatabase $ContentDB  -Confirm:$false
•De-activate and activate the Nintex workflow feature in new site collection.

 

Using below PowerShell script to published the Nintex workflows:-

Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue
[void][System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.SharePoint")

$filesLocation="E:\PublishWF\NWFs\AccountSiteColl\"

#loading the csv files
$URLs = Import-Csv -path ($filesLocation + "URLs.csv")
$WFNames = Import-Csv -path  ($filesLocation + "WFNames.csv")

ForEach($u in $URLs)
{
    #Target SharePoint site URL
    $WebURL=$u.URL
    $web = Get-SPWeb $WebURL
    #Nintex Web Service URL
    $WebSrvUrl=$web.Url+"/_vti_bin/nintexworkflow/workflow.asmx"
    $proxy=New-WebServiceProxy -Uri "$($webSrvUrl)?wsdl" -UseDefaultCredential
    $proxy.URL=$WebSrvUrl
    ForEach($wf in $WFNames)
    {
   
        #physical location of the nintex workflow template
        $WorkflowFile=$filesLocation+$wf.Location
        #Workflow name
        $wfName=$wf.Name
        #Get the Workflow from file
        $NWFcontent = get-content $WorkflowFile
        #upload and publish the workflow
        write-host "$($wfName) is being Published to site collection $($WebURL)" -ForegroundColor Yellow
        if($proxy.PublishFromNWFXml($NWFcontent, "" ,$wfName, $true))
        {
            write-host "$($wfName) published to site successfully." -ForegroundColor Green
        }
        else
        {
            write-host "There is some error in publishing $($wfName) to site." -BackgroundColor Red
        }
    }
     $web.Dispose()
}
