Goal:
Install Workflow manager in order to use SharePoint 2013 workflow.

Problem:
When I try registrating between SP2013 och WorkFlow manager based on the code:

 Give this command "Register-SPWorkflowService -SPSite "http://xxxx" -WorkflowHostUri "http://xxxx:12291" - AllowOAuthHttp

I retrieve an error message:

Register-SPWorkflowService : Unable to connect to the remote service at http://sharepoint01.com:12291/SharePoint/. See InnerException for more
 details. Client ActivityId : ce9ff6bc-b517-4eb7-9fb1-ea0197e2a3c4.
At line:2 char:1

   owEndpointNotFoundException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Microsoft.SharePoint.WorkflowServices.PowerShell.RegisterSPWorkflowService

I was trying a lot to solve this case but I still don't know what to do?

Can you make sure there is a site binding for Workflow Management Site on port 12291?

  • To check, go onto the server where you have the workflow manager installed.
  • Then open IIS and go to Sites and click Workflow Management Site.
  • Then click "Bindings..." on the right hand-side under "Actions" and check if you have a binding there for port 12291.

If you don't, then add one like this:

  • type: HTTP
  • IP address: All Unassigned
  • Port: 12291
  • Host name: [leave it blank]

Click OK and restart IIS.


Now try registering your site collection with the Workflow manager Farm again.

    Great respect to You! :) Awesome, You saved my evening! :) + I also can add that we can enable HTTP using this code: $config = (Get-SPSecurityTokenServiceConfig) $config.AllowOAuthOverHttp = $true $config.AllowMetaDataOverHttp = $true $config.Update() – Gennady G Jun 10 '16 at 22:09

Ensure you are using the right port. it can either be 12991 or 12291.

Check carefully in the IIS server.

  • 12290 for https and 12291 for http – Iman Abidi Jul 1 '15 at 8:59

do you have SharePoint Developer tools Preview for VS 12 installed on the server, if yes? you have to uninstall it, reboot it and run the register command again. SharePoint 2013 Workflow Manager error when I register workflow service

Also make sure ports are not blocked by firewall. and try to browse the endpoint URI url in the browser.

  • "do you have SharePoint Developer tools Preview for VS 12 installed on the server" Do you have a picture to show it? I might understand better. – What'sUP Feb 19 '14 at 14:41
  • "endpoint URI url"? What do you mean? Concrete example? – What'sUP Feb 19 '14 at 14:44
  • i dont have installed that on any serve, so i cant give you the screen print, One thing which I noticed from your Screen Shot that you have the Visual Studio on the server...so chances are you have this tool....Endpoint URI means which have the port number i.e 12990 or something like this. – Waqas Sarwar MVP Feb 19 '14 at 18:06
  • Go to Control Panel > Uninstall a program Select Microsoft Office Developer Tools for Visual Studio 2012 - Preview 2 - ENU Click on Change to uninstall it. The setup program should launch. Click on Uninstall to remove the Office Developer Tools. – Waqas Sarwar MVP Feb 19 '14 at 18:09
  • I dont have Microsoft Office Developer Tools installed in my computer. I use Visual Studio 2013 and VS 2012.................. The Endpoint URI 12990 and 12991 is working perfectly according to Windows firewll. Please look at the new uploaded picture above. – What'sUP Feb 19 '14 at 21:26
