Install and Configure Workflow For SharePoint Server 2013

Install and Configure Workflow For SharePoint Server 2013

Introduction 
The only platform available when you first install SharePoint Server 2013 is the SharePoint 2010 Workflow platform. The SharePoint 2013 Workflow platform and the Project Server platform require additional steps.

The SharePoint 2010 Workflow platform installs automatically when you install SharePoint Server 2013. The SharePoint 2013 Workflow platform requires the Workflow Manager and must be installed separately and then configured to work with your SharePoint Server 2013 farm.

The Workflow Manager is a new kind of application server that hosts/manages workflow execution. The SharePoint 2013 workflow is based on the .Net Framework 4.0.

Now we will learn the procedure for installing and configuring the workflow.

In the first step open the Web Platform Installer and add the Workflow Manager 1.0.

Add the Workflow Manager

Click on the "Install" button;

Then "Continue".

The next step is the Workflow Manager configuration wizard. We have three options here to configure the workflow. Here I am selecting the second option "Configure Workflow Manager with custom setting".

We need to check that the new service Workflow Manager has been started.

Run the following command in the SharePoint 2013 Management Shell:

Run the command in SharePoint Management Shell

We have now completed the workflow configuration, open the SharePoint designer and create a new workflowYes here we have the options for creating a SharePoint 2013 Workflow.

Failed to register because the farm or partition is already registered with a workflow service

Failed to register because the farm or partition is already registered with a workflow service

I was recently training a colleague on administering SharePoint and he was encountering issues with being unable to publish SharePoint Workflows after he applied an SSL certificate to his SharePoint site.

Well, immediately after checking his IIS bindings and his AAM settings, the next thing I thought of was that he would have to re-register his SharePoint site with the Workflow Service.

Of course, he ran the following command:

Register-SPWorkflowService -SPSite "https://spse/sites" -WorkflowHostUri "https://spse:12290" 

But he received the following error message: 
Failed to register because the farm or partition is already registered with a workflow
service


Well, fortunately, there was an easy solution to this!!  All he had to do was run the command with the -Force parameter:

 Register-SPWorkflowService -SPSite "https://spse/sites" -WorkflowHostUri "https://spse:12290" -Force

That was all that was needed to resolve his issue!! 


Hope this help,
