SharePoint 2013 workflow "An error has occurred. To try again, reload the page and start the workflow."

"An error has occurred. To try again, reload the page and start the workflow."

I've been looking for answers and as many have suggested, I've restarted services, recycling pools and Workflow Manager, but here's the seemingly unique problem at my end.
Even though service bus is installed according to the Web Platform Installer, the service bus AND Service Gateway Services are NOT listed under Services. It's like they're not installed.

Workflow server status – Workflow is connected
Both Workflow Service Application and Workflow service application proxy Are started".

2013 – Specify the URL or site collection ID to be deleted. The parameter -siteid must be used with the -force

Hello, I have an orphaned site in a content database when I run the Delete Orphaned Site command. I've received the following message from PowerShell about how to delete an orphaned site because the configuration wizard stops after you install the latest cumulative SharePoint updates.

stsadm -o deletesite -force -SiteID "03xxxx7c3-4f95-b343-42c8f9486243" -DatebaseName "WSS_Content9" -DatabaseServer "Sxxxx"

Specify the URL or the ID of the site collection that you want to delete. The -siteid Abs

Sharepoint 2013 Trail Version – Sharepoint Server Trail with Enterprise Client Access License

Team –

I work as a SharePoint developer and install SharePoint 2013 Enterprise in Azure VM.

I only have a trial version of the SharePoint 2013 environment. In this trial, I try to access the InfoPath form from the list.

All I get is "Trial period for this product has expired".

In the trial version, we can work in InfoPath form or it does not work?

Could you please inform me about this?

Many Thanks !!

2013 – Display template: Extract article summary

When creating a custom search search template, this query is answered: The search result item should display the item hyperlink first, then some managed properties, and finally the item summary.

In the default template, this is usually used to display the article summary and the link to the element:

_ # = ctx.RenderBody (ctx) = # _

But what can we use or what can we do if we just want to get the article summary?

New webpart development in SharePoint 2013

I need to develop some new Web Parts for SharePoint 2013 and they should be designed to easily migrate to SharePoint Online at a later time. The Web Parts must ideally have custom properties for the configuration. I am looking for a good approach, which later requires only minimal migration effort.
As far as I know, the best approach to developing web parts now is to develop client web parts with SPFx, but SPFx can not be used with SharePoint 2013.
I think about the following options:

  • Use the Script Editor or the Content Editor Web Part, and use a JavaScript framework such as Angular / React / jQuery, and so on. However, the problem here is that I can not have custom Web Part properties.
  • Develop an add-in part (client web part). However, the add-in parts are rendered as iframes, and I am also not sure if this is the way forward for future web part development because SPFx is now the modern framework for client web part development.

So I am not sure which approach to choose.
Any input to the above options or other suggestions / hints would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks.

rest – unsubscribe SharePoint 2013

I am working on Sharepoint API and have a login method that looks like this:

    public void login (String configFileName) {

    CredentialsProvider credsProvider = new BasicCredentialsProvider ();
credsProvider.setCredentials (
new AuthScope (AuthScope.ANY),
new NTCredentials (login, password, workstation, url-site));
Client = HttpClients.custom ()
.setDefaultCredentialsProvider (credsProvider)
.to build();

To attempt {
HttpGet httpget = new HttpGet (urlsite);

System.out.println ("Execute Request" + httpget.getRequestLine ());
HttpResponse response = client.execute (httpget);
To attempt {
System.out.println ("------------------------------------");
System.out.println (response.getStatusLine ());
EntityUtils.consume (response.getEntity ());
} catch (IOException e) {
logger.error ("", e);

} catch (IOException e) {
logger.error ("", e);

Since I am a beginner and I have to admit that I found it on the internet, it works perfectly.

The problem is that I have no idea how to split sharepoint based on my login code.

Can someone help me?

Many Thanks!!
