Some questions about Document Generation

Hi everybody,


due to our following migration from OnPrem-SharePoint 2013 to 2016 we will also upgrade the installed Nintex Workflow/Forms-version to the one that includes the new Document Generation-feature.

To evaluate if this new feature matches our requirements I do have some questions I didn't find complete satisfying answers in the given documentation so I directly ask them here :-)


Do I understand correctly, that

  1. the WFE-servers have to be opened to the internet so that for every document generation a connection to Nintex Live can be established?
  2. document generation happens in the cloud and not locally on our OnPrem-farm? Will the document template itself and the data from the workflow and listitems leave our network and be sent to the cloud to be assembled there and then the final document will return?
  3. the creation of documents is subject to a quota and must be payed extra? What about companies that have an enterprise license?
