We recall the definition of essential idempotents and its implications for cyclic and Abelian codes. Then, we consider nilpotent group codes, i.e. codes that can be realized as ideals in the finite (semisimple) group algebra of a nilpotent group. We discuss the existence of essential idempotents in this context and study properties of minimal nilpotent codes.
