Error Using Call Web Service - Startworkflow

Hi all,


I have Nintex workflows that I use Call Web Service functions to start other workflows.

I use Web Services to start new workflows so I can use a system account to run the workflows.


All of a sudden these are getting errors like "An error occurred while parsing EntityName. Line 2, position 429." but they aren't causing the workflow to error.  I only know about the error because I am logging errors in the Call Web Service function.


I have been using this same process for years and not had this problem.

A search on the internet has talked a lot about having special characters in the EntityName but I do not have these.  I have dashes - and underscores _ but those aren't special characters and I have been using those for years for file names.


Here is a screenshot of the web service call that is having a problem. This was imported from a SP2007 environment into my SP2013 environment and has worked fine for months.

I recreated the call web service from scratch and it still fails.  It looks a little different but doesn't work.


Current SOAP:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<soap:Envelope xmlns:xsi="" xmlns:xsd="" xmlns:soap="">


        <StartWorkflow xmlns="">


            <workflowName>1 Start</workflowName>





Rebuilt SOAP:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<soap:Envelope xmlns:xsi="" xmlns:soap="" xmlns:m="">






      <m:workflowName>1 Start</m:workflowName>
