  • Hi Marcsimm,

    Try this

    The error text that pasted indicates that you're getting access denied on workflow calling back to SharePoint.

    Workflow uses signed security tokens to authenticate. The SharePoint Web Application must be claims enabled and not use Forms Based Authentication (which is a requirement of SharePoint OAuth).

    Because the response header only includes WWW-Authenticate: NTLM it would seem that SharePoint is not configured for server-to-server authentication (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj219546.aspx)

    Thanks

  • I would suggest to check whether your workflow service is correctly responding in the browser normally and also ensure that workflow manager is correctly configured and integrated with SharePoint normally.

    Here is the reference link for configuration of Workflow Manager with SharePoint Server 2013.
