I have a SharePoint 2013 On-Prem Server, with Nintex WF Standard Edition. I have a list where Nintex workflow is used for an approval process.


When an item is added the workflow starts and assigns a task to a person. Meanwhile, I want to stop users from editing the current item on which the workflow is running.

I have around 75 workflows, on which these activities have to be implemented. 


I tried using WF Actions like,

1. Set Item Permission

2. Set Permission (inside Assign a task process )


Instead of editing all the workflows and implementing this change, is there any global fix which can be done in Central Administration or anywhere, which reflects in all the WF's?


If not, what can be done with less effort?
