I have seen here several discussion about how to trigger a 2013 list workflow using REST, but so far I cannot succeed in running a site workflow, which should be basically easier. My code:


returns a BadRequest. The subscriptionId is correct and the WF called is a site workflow without parameter.
What am I missing?

It seems there is only a workaround: move all actions in the list workflow I wanted to use to launch the site workflow. It works perfectly (of course after re-configuring all parameters).

  • Can you explain this in more detail? Do you mean that you ended up moving all your Site WF's actions into a new List WF instead? Commented Jun 6, 2019 at 15:57

    @ChrisOdegard, yes, I have created a plain list workflow and copied all actions there

Try this site "Create a SharePoint 2013 workflow to start the site workflow" http://www.documentmanagementworkflowinfo.com/sharepoint-2013/sharepoint-designer-2013-workflow-start-another-workflow.htm

  • This is valid only for 2010 site workflows
