I've not access to the production environment so I can't see the ULS log.

I've got several 2010 workflows that worked pretty well yesterday. But today they suddenly stopped working. When I try to manually start a workflow I get "Sorry something went wrong" and "file not found".

So I thought it was some errors in my custom workflow. So I just added a new custom list and added a simple 2010 workflow, that add a extra element in the list. -> published. When I look in the library workflow, I can see the workflow. But then I try to start the workflow it fails "file not found". When I try to modify the view to see the workflow column it does not appear!

I've tried many different workflows without any luck! Then I tried to add a OOTB workflow and it runs!

I'm in a SP2013 environment, and I've tried:

  • Restarting the workflow feature
  • Tried to add a simple workflow in another site collection, fails

    Check the ULS logs for complete error trace, try to restart workflow timer jobs, restart the SharePoint Timer services.....is it publishing site? – Waqas Sarwar MVP Dec 17 '14 at 17:08
  • Yes, it's a publishing site. Witch SharePoint timer services should I restart? (Central admin?) – Plexus81 Dec 17 '14 at 17:11

    You have to make sure "Workflow" timer jobs run successfully. If you dont have CA/ server access then it will be tough to identify issue... – Waqas Sarwar MVP Dec 17 '14 at 17:22

System administrator run

Disable-SPFeature -Identity WorkflowServiceStore -Url http://superawesome.info -Force

Then you have to reenable the feature again. And a IIS reset

That worked :)
