No workflow definitions returned RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm attempting to write a simple test application to list the workflow definitions on a SharePoint Online site. I've tried both a provider hosted CSOM and JSOM approach and I cannot get any definitions listed. The CSOM approach is standard code as follows..

    public ActionResult About()
                User spUser = null;
                var spContext = SharePointContextProvider.Current.GetSharePointContext(HttpContext);
                using (var clientContext = spContext.CreateUserClientContextForSPHost())
                    if (clientContext != null)
                        WorkflowServicesManager wfServicesManager = new WorkflowServicesManager(clientContext, clientContext.Web);
                        WorkflowDeploymentService wfDeploymentService = wfServicesManager.GetWorkflowDeploymentService();
                        WorkflowDefinitionCollection wfDefinitions = wfDeploymentService.EnumerateDefinitions(false);
                        StringBuilder builder = new StringBuilder();
                        foreach (var def in wfDefinitions)
                            builder.AppendLine("Workflow" + def.DisplayName);
                        ViewBag.Message = builder.ToString();
                return View();

    I've created and deployed both Sharepoint 2010 approval workflows and 2013 list based workflows and a site workflow and non of the definitions show up.

    My JSOM and CSOM apps run fine in every other respect but no workflows are listed. Any idea greatly appreciated..
