What could cause a properly configured action to throw a NullReferenceException like this one in a Nintex Workflow 2013 site workflow?


Nintex.Workflow.NWActionExecutionException: Create Site Specific Item Activity ---> System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.   

at Nintex.Workflow.Activities.CreateSiteSpecificItemActivity.Process(NWWorkflowContext ctx, ActivityExecutionContext executionContext)   

at Nintex.Workflow.Activities.CreateSiteSpecificItemActivity.Execute(ActivityExecutionContext executionContext)   

at System.Workflow.ComponentModel.ActivityExecutor`1.Execute(T activity, ActivityExecutionContext executionContext)   

at System.Workflow.ComponentModel.ActivityExecutorOperation.Run(IWorkflowCoreRuntime workflowCoreRuntime)   

at System.Workflow.Runtime.Scheduler.Run()     -


The target list exists in the context team site, the folder gets created if missing (with expected Name but no Title), but not the item inside it.


The behavior is consistent with simpler items in trivial custom list apps within the same team site.



Any hints would be appreciated.
