I set up workflow manager server and now my sharepoint 2013 can use 2013 workflows. I created a test workflow and I set the triggers to run when an item is created or updated. The problem is when I try it, the workflow is not triggering. It still shows 0 instances running, and in the workflow column in the list, nothing shows there.

What can I do to figure out whats not working? Also the 2010 version works fine. If I try to run manually, it still does not work.

Thanks

  • Is your user profile sync active and working? – Mike Dec 10 '15 at 15:41
  • I never set up user profile service on my farm. Also this is a dev environment not production. But why would this be needed for workflow? – omega Dec 10 '15 at 15:43
  • Workflow 2013 uses REST in order to utilize communication with the workflow farm, since workflow 2013 doesn't need SharePoint. You need to have a working user profile association and a user profile for the service accounts. – Mike Dec 10 '15 at 17:40

Workflow 2013 uses REST in order to utilize communication with the workflow farm, since workflow 2013 doesn't need SharePoint. You need to have a working user profile association and a user profile for the service accounts.

Excerpt from Technet

"The user who deploys and runs a workflow must be added to the User Profile service. Check the User Profile service application page in Central Administration to confirm that the user you are using to validate workflow installation is in the User Profile service."
