SharePoint 2013 Workflow not triggered on item update using another workflow RRS feed

  • Question

  • Thanks for your time!!!

    Current Status - SharePoint 2013 with SP1 (15.0.4571.1502) and recently installed SP Workflow 2013 

    I have a workflow1 on list A that creates/updates an item on list B. I have another workflow2 on list B which updates some fields in current Item and updated child items.(List B has Document Sets)

    When i directly update the List B Item, the workflow2 is triggered and updates fields and  child items.

    Current Problem is when i updated  item in List A, workflow1 is triggered and item in List B gets updated, But the List B workflow is not triggered.

    Apparently this is a known issue with SP1 and a hotfix is released on May 7th,2014 (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2878240)

    • Assume that you create a list workflow on list A that creates an item on list B. Then, you create another list workflow on list B. When you create an item on list A and start the workflow for the list, list B is not triggered as expected.

    This update requires a Prerequisite as per kb2878240

    "You must install the following public update before you apply this cumulative update package:
    2767999 Description of the SharePoint Server 2013 update: March 12, 2013"

    Which i believe was included in the SP1 as per Microsoft SP1 "includes all cumulative updates through December 2013 and public updates through February 2014".( SharePoint Server 2013 Service Pack 1 Details).

    This did not fix the issue



    Another user suggested installing update 2880963 released on May 13,2014 will fix the issues

    faced https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/sharepoint/en-US/772cff4d-88f2-46ab-b893-d26d1ba5f189/workflow-error-after-installation-of-sp1?forum=sharepointadmin

    But even this did not fix.

    Any guidance Please....

    Thanks
