I have created a SharePoint 2010 workflow to send an email on list. when I add item into list using code, it not triggers the workflow. however when I enter Item manually it works fine.

  • Are you using RunWithElevatedPrivileges? The workflows don't work when you are using System Account to add item.. – Arsalan Adam Khatri Sep 12 '18 at 11:46
  • Yes I am using RunWithElevated, However I need it because not all users have the pemission to create list item. – Ramesh Sep 12 '18 at 12:07
  • Through code, are you able add item? did you check whether the item is there or not? – Arulraj Sep 12 '18 at 12:56
  • @Ramesh this might help sharepoint.stackexchange.com/questions/56751/… – Arsalan Adam Khatri Sep 12 '18 at 13:38

A common issue is that workflow not starting automatically as System Account. So don't run the code with system account.
