Deploy a workflow with NWAdmin.exe -o DeployWorkflow in a claims based authentication SharePoint site

Question asked by didiercacciola on Aug 18, 2016

Hello,

 

I'm trying to deploy a workflow defined in a .nwf file, from command line, with the following operation : NWAdmin.exe -o DeployWorkflow .

I'm having the following error :

Error deploying workflow: Server was unable to process request. ---> Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED))

 

The site where the workflow is to be deployed is under a Web Application configured with claims based authentication (ADFS).

I have extended the Web Application and configured the extension with Windows NTLM authentication. I run the command with the according site url and then it's working fine, the workflow is correctly deployed on the site.

 

My question is, does NWAdmin.exe support administering sites configured with claims based authentication provider?

 

Thank you in advance
