I have a WCF service deployed in IIS Website. I am able to invoke the service from web browser using service url -


It returns data in XML format as desired -

  <string xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/2003/10/Serialization/">hello</string>

What I need is to use the service in SharePoint workflow using the 'Call HTTP Web Service' action. I am specifying the url which is same as earlier, with GET method and no body -


The action looks like below

But when I execute the workflow, the service is not called. Instead the workflow fails to start with a message like -

What could be a possible solution?

  • what did you write into the request/response parameter? – Gwny Sep 17 '14 at 13:52
  • The request and response parameters are empty – Bishnu D. Sep 17 '14 at 15:11
  • more, I also tried to call the service using jQuery AJAX. There is some problem too. As I see on the console the console says 'No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource'. Still not sure if the SharePoint workflow is facing the same issue. – Bishnu D. Sep 17 '14 at 15:13
