Workflows on External Lists
Is it possible to add Workflows to an External List i.e connected to BDC/SQL DB
Scott Robinson commented
I agree - there will always be the need for external connections and specifically external lists that we need Nintex to support. We are moving more and more lists to SQL external lists and we are hopeful that Nintex will understand the business need for this.

Yes, it is possible to create a Nintex workflow and form against a SharePoint external list via a work around. It's not supported out of the box. We're moving more and more of our SharePoint lists to be external lists with content coming from SQL Server.
This is not to be confused with an external Nintex workflow.
