On a viewflow screen, you select one of the activities to see additional information for that activity. This should redirect you to the Activity Instance Details page for that activity, but instead you are presented with a 404 error that the requested resource was not found or has been moved.

You had a 4.7 environment with multiple sites configured in IIS and you upgraded to 5.3 without consolidating your sites. Workflows that were created in 4.7 will continue to exhibit the expected behavior when you click on an activity from a viewflow.

What the redirect URL should look like: 


When you click on a viewflow activity, the following error is displayed: upgrade multiple server application


This issue occurs on environments that had multiple sites configured in 4.7 that upgraded to 5.3 without consolidating the sites.

    • Use the management console to get the reporting data 
    • Use a custom reporting service to view the activity data
    • Change the first 'Runtime' from the URL to 'Designer'.
