SharePoint Designer 2013 - SharePoint 2013 Workflow

Enabling SharePoint 2013 Workflow in SharePoint Designer 2013.

By Default, SharePoint 2013 Workflow is not available in SharePoint Designer 2013, you need to install workflow manager first, then configure it.

Steps to follow:

  1. Install Workflow Manager Client
  2. After installation, if you are communicating with Workflow manager via http or https you may need to change the powershell cmdlet to suite.  In my case I was using it over HTTP, so the following cmdlet worked for me.  You can have a look for "Workflow Management Site" in IIS, to get the workflowhosturi.
Register-SPWorkflowService –SPSite "http://myserver/mysitecollection" –WorkflowHostUri "http://myserver:12291" –AllowOAuthHttp

After those steps, you should now have the SharePoint 2013 Workflow enabled.

To see more detail, have a look at this technet article.
