What's up Ninsters???
Finally back home in the city of Johannesburg, and I've been working on all sorts of interesting things! I've put together a little video below showing you how using List Alerts in conjunction with the Workflow History List on Office 365 to allow you to get Workflow Error Notifications.
Step 1: Access the history list for the site you would like to set up Workflow Error Notifications:
Append the following to your Site URL:
For example, if your site URL is https://example.sharepoint.com/sites/hr , then the appended URL appears as follows.
NB: Taken from our Online Help File titled Monitoring workflow status and history
Step 2: Set up your Errored Workflows List View
Creating a view called Errored Workflows with the following configuration:
NB: This resulted in me getting a List View from my Workflow History for all the workflows that have any of the keywords which are put in the Description whenever a workflow gets suspended for whatever reason, sorted by the latest one at the top.
Step 3: Set up your list Alert:
From your Workflow History List set up an Alert from the ribbon
Step 4: Test this by running workflows that get suspended and throw an error message:
In my case I ran on of my buggy workflows:
And I received the following Alert as anticipated:
And... that's it! Would love it if you guys have a crack at this, and share some of thoughts and experiences!
I wish you all a really great weekend!
This only captures some of the errors in the workflow history list. Do you know if there is a comprehensive error list that we can tap into?
Good day Joanne Morris , thanks for the comment! unfortunately @ this stage we're limited to the type of errors we get pushed into the list due to relying on MS Workflow Manager on office 365. Hopefully in future releases we'll be able to capture more events
