Nintex InspireX – Nintex Workflow Platform Jumpstart

28 02 2016

Nintex InspireXIt was 8am in Las Vegas and instead of feeding the slot machines in the Aria hotel I was in the Nintex Workflow Platform Jumpstart pre-conferee workshop being run by TekDogs Jason Keller.

The workshop was a great way for me to kick of the conference. For me it reinforced what I already know about Nintex Workflow and Forms but also gave me a few tips and tricks that I could take back to the office to share with my team.

If you want to learn more about Nintex through training, there are various options listed below:

I have used all of these and are all very good.

The material covered in the training was copyrighted so I cannot share all of it however the following tip (with my own additions) and others that I already do, I’ll share over the coming months.

Tip – Use a Service Account

Create one or more service accounts for workflows. I like to use a dedicated workflow service account for each departments workflows and sometimes for specific workflows. Your IT department will have a naming convention for service accounts but here are some examples I would use:

  • WF-HR-LeaveRequest
  • WF-IT-NewHardware

Some will make sure that the service account password does not expired. I prefer to have a process to change the password periodically but have it expire once a year.
If you set the service accounts as “Constants” you can then limit access by using security groups.
