    Error: No matching workflow instance ids found in the Nintex Workflow database when running the nwadmin purgeHistoryListData

    Status: Validated

    ISSUE

    No matching workflow instance ids found in the Nintex Workflow database.
    ERROR CODE
    RESOLUTION
    Use the "Cleanup Workflow History" application at the link below to delete history list items.

    Clean Workflow History tool
    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
    The error occurs when the nwadmin PurgewWorkflowData command was run before the nwadmin PurgeHistoryListData; the PurgeHistoryListData command should be run first. The nwadmin PurgeHistoryListData command queries the workflowprogress table in the Nintex Content database to validate the workflow instance IDs to be purged from the history list. If the workflow instance IDs cannot be found then the nwadmin command will return a error. The PurgeWorkflowData command will remove references to the workflow instance IDs resulting in orphaned list items in the workflow history list.
