I am trying to publish workflow on SharePoint 2013. I created workflow on my local system and trying to publish to live. But it returning a warning popup. I have full control, Design and Read of the SharePoint site. Also I am a primary administrator of SharePoint central admin. This causing issues when I am selecting the below option from workflow:- i) Start Workflow automatically when an item is created ii) Start Workflow automatically when an item is changed

I re-install the workflow and checked the permission as well. enter image description here enter image description here Also after few hours, iis reset, if I ran workflow manually it return me 403 forbiddon error. Can anyone please advise what issues can be there in this? To publish the workflow.

Try to publish the workflow using another account with the correct permission and compare the result.

Please make sure you have "Use Remote Interfaces" permission at web application level:
