Sharepoint 2013 workflow not working for form based authentication RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are getting error with LDAP form based authentication and kicking off sharepoint 2013 workflow.

    Details: System.ApplicationException: HTTP 401 {"x-ms-diagnostics":["3001000;reason=\"There has been an error authenticating the request.\";category=\"invalid_client\""],

    We are not able to submit the workflow in sharepoint code using form based authentication. The code works with windows authenticated users. With form based ldap user workflow goes to suspended state with above exception

    Does this mean form based authentication is not supported to kick off sharepoint 2013 workflow?

  • Did you find a solution to this issue? I'm experiencing the exact same behavior with workflows initiated by LDAP FBA user but it works fine the a windows user.

  • Chris,

    What we did is used one higher authority user to execute these workflows instead of current context user and that solved our problems of this error.
