Workflow Stuck On Starting After Password Change

I generally use my own account to create and publish workflows. One day, none of my workflows were completing and they were all stuck on “starting”. I thought maybe there was something wrong with the workflows themselves so I tweaked one of them a bit and re-published and voila! It worked! But the thing I tweaked really shouldn’t have “fixed” anything. So I changed it back and again, it worked!

After banging my head against my desk for a little while I remembered updating my password that morning. Maybe all I needed to do was republish my workflows.

Which is what I did and it fixed everything.

There may have been an easier solution, but this worked for me.

Summary:

If you’re going to use your own account to create and publish workflows, you might have to re-publish every time you change your password.

You should probably use an admin account without a password policy to publish workflows.
