I have an on-premises SharePoint 2013 farm with Workflow Manager 1.0 installed and configured on a single server (development environment). When we go to manually execute a workflow against a list, we are presented with the standard error message ("Something went wrong. To try again, reload the page and then end the workflow").

Going into the ULS logs returns the following error message:

Microsoft.Workflow.Client.InvalidRequestException: The scope '/SharePoint/default/56f5f99d-c701-4c08-b3e1-d4048d883bd7/7d3631b1-5190-4a9f-ac7b-0be2da1fa8a7' has no workflows under it. HTTP headers received from the server - ActivityId: 4347c8a0-6285-4d78-80d4-fbb7bd54fc90. NodeId: NWN401WV1315.

I have attempted the following to try and resolve the issue:

  1. Restarted the Service Bus Gateway and the Service Bus Message Broker services according to this link.
  2. Restarted User Profile Service and User Profile Synchronization Service from SharePoint's Central Administration.
  3. Validated that the user profile synchronization was still working.
  4. Restarted Workflow Manager Website in IIS
  5. Restarted Workflow Manager backend service in the Services console.
  6. Restarted the server

I'd appreciate any suggestions that anyone has had to resolve this issue.
