In this post, we will discuss how to resolve one workflow issue which appears after migrating from Moss 2007 to SharePoint 2013. Recently while working on a migration project from moss 2007 to SharePoint 2013 we saw that the default workflows which were created in moss 2007 do not appear in SharePoint 2013.
Here we will discuss how we can resolve the issue.
– App Step in SharePoint 2013 Designer Workflow
The issue was coming in one of the SharePoint 2013 site which we got migrated from MOSS 2007. We migrated the sites using database upgrade approach, like from MOSS 2007 to SharePoint 2010 and then from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013. After this we face the issue, the default workflows like Approval and Collect Feedback are not appearing in SharePoint 2013.
In most 2007 site, if I go to any list or document library and click on ECB menu for any item then Workflows like below:
Then we will be able to see the default workflows like below (In this particular case there are two workflows like Approval and Collect Feedback workflows):
In SharePoint 2013, if you will go to the ECB menu and click on Workflows like below:
You will not see the default workflows there. It will show a message like This item has no workflows to start like below:
To solve the issue open the list or document library. Then from the ribbon click on Workflow settings as shown in the fig below:
This will open the workflow settings page. Here first from the dropdown select Document. Then click on “Remove, Block, or Restore a Workflow” like below:
Then in the next screen select all radio buttons for your workflows in Allow section like below:
After this, you will be able to see the workflows when you will navigate from the ECB menu for a particular item.
Hope this will be helpful.
