I installed Workflow Manager and deployed a simple workflow to test it out. Basically what it does is assign a task and then once the workflow is approved it writes some words to history.

Now here's the problem: the workflow runs flawlessly UNTIL it reaches a task. After I approve the task, the workflow is stuck there for a whole day before it continues running. This is just an absurd behavior.

What might be the cause of this?

  • Within "configure" are you assigning it to a specific person or waiting for the system to find that person? Commented Oct 20, 2016 at 15:13
  • I assign it to 1 specific person.

There must be a timer job dependency schedule to run once in a day which is why it is taking too long (perhaps a day) to continue with the flow after task is being approved.
