  1. Secure Datagateway to on-premises LOB system

    As pr. now if we need to connect to on-premises LOB data from O365 workflow/form or Workflow Cloud, we need to make the SQL server/LOB system available through internet. For many this is not an option. Please consider a solution like Microsofts Datagateway for Flow and PowerApps. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/flow/gateway-reference

    • Please add an Exchange Online connector

      Please add Exchange Online triggers and actions to Nintex Workflow Cloud. I would love to be able to use the following examples:

      - Run workflow when an email is received
      - Move email to folder
      - Get email

      And I also would love to be able to get these ability for Office Group Mailboxes.

      • The ability to open and close a Azure VPN tunnel

        Using something like https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/vpn-gateway/ and other similar services.

        Being able to securely connect to On-Premise data thru an on-demand VPN tunnel would provide a cost effective way to connect to this data rather than having to establish an always on VPN tunnel

        • Rule - Date2 control can't be before Date1 control

          Similar to booking sites. Having the ability to have 2 date controls with the second date control not having the ability to select a date before the first date control. Or at least to fail validation is date2 is earlier than Date1

          • Add Oracle Connector to Nintex Workflow Cloud

            Will you please add an Oracle Connector to Nintex Workflow Cloud that would permit workflows to log in to an Oracle database as a user and perform tasks that the user is authorized to perform (e.g., Create, Read, Update, Delete, Select) operations? Thank you.

            • Have more than 4 controls across in design

              When placing fields and I have 4 controls, but I may need to change some out but can't due to only having 4. EG>>

              City, Country, State, Zip Code
              If country equals Australia I want the drop down with Australian states
              If the country equals USA I want a drop down that only has USA states, But I can't because I can't design the form to include all the different State fields I require for my rules.

              • Connection Error After Exiting Connection Creation

                Currently when you cancel creating a new connection from within the Connections Manager, there is always a message that there was a connection error: "An error has occurred with creating your connection. Please try again later."

                While the connection was not created, there also was not really an error, so this messaging should probably be updated to reflect what actually happened.

                  I would be nice to show a toaster indicating my trial has expired BEFORE I spend the time designing it and then finding out I cannot save it....

                  • NWC SQL Queries - retrieve multiple columns

                    The SQL connectors allow a designer to select a single column for select queries. Many times we wish to select multiple columns. Can these actions be modified so we can add an unlimited number of columns?

                    • REST endpoints for external system to query Nintex Workflow Cloud

                      e.g.
                      REST endpoint to get list of workflow task
                      REST api to approve or update a workflow task
                      support of REST api is important when external systems needs to integrates with NWC.

                      e.g. external system calls external start workflow, returning the workflow instance id. External system calls api with instance id to get the workflow status, etc.

                        Hi KK, what external hosts systems are you planning to integrate with?

                        In addition, what are your expectations around authorization and authentication when it comes to consuming these REST endpoints if we were to make them available?

                        Thanks.

                      • support of complex math function

                        support more complex methods of math operations, e.g.
                        (varible1 * variable2) / variable3
                        sum(var1, var2, var3, var4)
                        other functions such as product(), mod(), power(), sqrt(), etc.

                            Thanks for the suggestion. Is there a particular reason you are restoring the older version of the workflow? I get the usefulness of the feature request – however I’m keen to understand the motivation – we may uncover other features or alternatives and that is what I’m keen on exploring.

                          • Allow comparison between Integer variables and decimals

                            If I define two variables, X (as Integer) and Y (as Decimal) I should be able to perform basic math comparisons between them. But NWC does not allow these variables to be compared in a Condition action.

                            • String to date action

                              We need to have a more complete approach to manipulating dates.

                              Scenario: External start receives a date value to a date field. Another systems (CRM Query Record action for example) take the date in another format.

                              Issue: Can't pass the variable to the Salesforce Query Record action as you can't get the date in the right format

                              Potential short term fix: Create a string to date action - we pass the date to the external start variable (string), maipulate string into right format, use 'string to date' action to set a date variable in a format that the Salesforce query…

                              • Allow changes to Start Event

                                Once the workflow is saved with configured Start Event (e.g. Web Form), you are not allowed to change the Start Event for that workflow to other event such as External Start Event. I have a workflow started with Web Form, and the workflow grown to a size, now I wanted to change the Start Event to External Start, I found not way to do it.

                                Even I have the workflow exported, and created a new workflow and imported the workflow that I have exported. The event still stick to the Public Web Form....

                                • Call a web service action with credential/token from existing connector

                                  Most of the REST API endpoints required to supply Authorization: Bearer as part of the Header, if a different version of the "call a web service" action is provided with the capability to make use of the Connector(s) in Nintex Workflow Cloud, that will open up the opportunity of all available endpoints of the external system to which we are integrating with.

                                  e.g. All the Actions of the Sharepoint online covers only few endpoints of the Sharepoint Online. The proposed version of "call a web service" will make the Sharepoint Connector to be used to access all the available Sharepoint…

                                    Hi KK, thanks for the suggestion. As we’ve recently released Nintex Xtensions, why not build a Connector using the Nintex Xtensions Framework?

                                    This makes the action much more reusable and easier to configure. Or is your request to do with something else?

                                    Thanks!

                                    I would like to see graphical view of workflow progress like OnPrem.
