I have been trying to install the Workflow Manager on our SharePoint farm. I verified that all services are running (Service Bus message broker, Service Bus Gateway, Windows Frabric Host Service and the Workflow Manager backend) and they do under a farm account that I specified.

However, when trying to access the Worfklow Manager site it returns the following XML:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
    <ScopeInfo xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/workflow/2012/xaml/activities" xmlns:i="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
    <Description>Root Scope</Description>
            <ScopedSecurityConfiguration i:type="WindowsSecurityConfiguration">

What is the resolution for this? I have been going through Microsoft TechNet's articles but couldn't troubleshoot the issue.

Thanks for your support.

If you are getting the XML that's mean your Installation & configuration of Workflow Manager is sucessfull.

Now next step is register the work. To register the wrokflow with sharepoint, use below technet.


After this, you have to validate it. To validate the installation

  • Add a user to your SharePoint site, and grant the user Site Designer permissions.
  • Install SharePoint Designer 2013 and create a workflow based on the SharePoint 2013 Workflow platform.
  • Run this workflow from the SharePoint user interface.
