Nintex Workflow: Remove / Delete Custom Actions


We have created a lot of custom actions and wanted to remove some custom actions that are created for POC purpose only.


For Nintex Workflow 2010,

  • Using windows powershell go to, “C:\Program Files\Nintex\Nintex Workflow 2010” or “C:\Program Files (x86)\Nintex\Nintex Workflow 2010”
  • Run NWAdmin.exe with switches -o RemoveAction -adapterType <namespace.class of adapter> | -id <id of action>
  • One way of finding ID of Custom Action is accessing Nintex database and looking into table “Activities”. In this table you will be able to find all details related to custom activities.

For Nintex Workflow 2013,

  • Path of NWAdmin.exe changes to “C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\15\BIN”

Web Part Maintenance Page

It is sometimes difficult or rather impossible to delete or edit a web part. When clicked on “Modify Shared web part” link, error page appeared


“An unexpected error has occurred.


One way to delete the web part is to go to web part maintenance page and delete it. This can be done by adding “?contents=1” to default.aspx page.


An example can be http://portal/sitedirectory/abc/default.aspx?contents=1

MOSS: Manage / Delete Users Alerts

Alerts against documents, list items, discussions and so on can be deleted / modified as under: 

Move from “Site Actions” to “Site Settings”. Here, select “Users Alerts” under “Site Administration”. Select the user from “Display Alerts for” drop down list and click on “Update”. Alerts against this user will be displayed. Select the alerts and delete them.

Same works for SharePoint with little modification.
