  • Thank you all. The issue got resolved, not sure how. But 2013 workflow task process started working only when i tried the task process with 2010 workflow. Once 2010 w/f executed then i retried with 2013 w/f it started working without any errors, removed 2010 w/f now and 2013 w/f task process works fine.

Make sure that the content type inherited from "Workflow Task", not from "Task".


Go to Workflow Tasks list, make sure it allow the management of Content Types. enter image description here

Then go back to List settings, and make sure Workflow Task(SharePoint 2013) content type is added. If not ,add it.
