Workflow Errors Using the "Manager" Property in Project Server

Issue

When using the "Manager" property in Project Server, workflows display errors and fail to run.

 

Resolution

As a workaround, find another user who is not the initiator of the workflow, and then use the Query LDAP action to get the manager. 

 

Additional Information

This is a limitation of the way workflows are run in Project Server. Workflows run in the context of the System Account (SHAREPOINT\system). Nintex uses SharePoint's functionality to determine the manager. The code which retrieves the manager is unable to resolve "SHAREPOINT\system" correctly.
