  • Hi Suhil,

    According to the error message, a possible cause is that the workflow manager seems not working properly.

    I suggest you create a SharePoint 2013 platform workflow in SharePoint Designer 2013 and publish to a list to see if the workflow can work without issue.

    Also, please check whether the workflow manager has been configured properly by following the documentation below:
