Meanwhile try to create a simple workflow with SDP 2013 I faced an issue.

enter image description here

The Simple workflow does not send the email meanwhile :

  • Alerts notifications works properly and sends mail without problem. So the CA> system setting > mail configuration is right.
  • UPA is working and sync with no error
  • ULS throw this exception

From the error above, seems like your User Profile Service Application is not available.

Please go to SharePoint Central Administration and check if User Profile Service Application is started.

Another cause could be on the answer no. 2 on this post.

  • Thanks Andy ,UPA is working and sync, I will go through the post. Commented Oct 21, 2016 at 10:29

Although the second point in Ganesha's answer in the post help me to fix the problem:

Go to UserProfile service(Any SA) and select the Permissions option and all above users give the same permissions.

I'd like to add further information the answer and isolate the right user account so next collegaues can implement the solution with a little bit more security In order to identify what exact user is throwing the exception , filter the uls log by correlation and filter by string :

"Current thread identity is claim auth"

The Uls shouw something like this

Current thread identity is claim auth. Result: 'i:0).w|s-1-5-21-3295615728-2786961072-2904720250-1917'.

now select the line and remove the last filter , the next three lines in the uls log will point that the user failed to connect with the UPA, and the exceptions are rigth after them

enter image description here

Open a Powershell AD module console and use this script, remeber use your user sid value in the scrip

$objSID = New-Object System.Security.Principal.SecurityIdentifier `
$objUser = $objSID.Translate(System.Security.Principal.NTAccount]) 

The script will return the user account you have to add to the UPA permission
