I am setting workflow start on creation. It shows error and keep retrying every 17 minutes.
But I want to know how many times or how much hours this retrying happens?
Please let me know if anyone knows.
The timer job used to process the SharePoint workflows will continue to try and run the workflow until you stop it. The WorkFlowTimerJob runs every 5 minutes and has a 15 workflow limit per timer job if I remember correctly. In order to stop your workflow from running, you need to go to the workflow property on the list and stop it or it will just keep trying to run it. It can also start to stack the workflow processes and can cause performance issues and eventually critical issues at the Farm level.
