Office 365 Actions Fail With Error: 'The Username Is Invalid Or Does Not Exist'

Issue

When a Nintex for Office 365 workflow configured with one of the Office 365 workflow actions runs, the workflow suspends with the error: 'The username is invalid or does not exist, or the password is invalid for the username specified' in the workflow history.

Resolution

  • Verify that the username and password within the Office 365 action is correct (eg. username@domain.onmicrosoft.com vs. username@domain.sharepoint.com)
  • Verify that the account being used does not have Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) enabled, as MFA is not currently supported by Nintex for Office 365
  • Verify that the action works with an @domain.onmicrosoft.com account vs. an @domain.com account. Success with an @domain.onmicrosft.com account vs a domain account will indicate an issue with ADFS. The Microsoft Remote Connectivity Analyzer can be used to investigate ADFS issues further. 

Additional Information
