    Error "Nintex.Workflow.WorkflowRepository.NameInUse" saving or publishing workflow

    Status: Validated

    ISSUE
    When attempting to save or publish a new Workflow, the following error might occur:

    Nintex.Workflow.WorkflowRepository.NameInUse

    The full error in the ULS logs will include: 

    Nintex.Workflow.WorkflowRepository.NameInUse(String workflowName, Guid listId, WorkflowType& workflowType)
    ERROR CODE
    RESOLUTION
    Find and delete any empty folders from the Nintex Workflows hidden library. The library can be found at: http://<Farm>/<Site>/NintexWorkflows

    Once the empty folder is located and deleted the Workflow should publish correctly.

     

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
    This is caused by an empty folder in the hidden Nintex Workflows library in the site.
