Could not successfully create management Service Bus entity ‘WF_ManagementWFTOPIC’

SP2013


Hello everyone,

Today I will talk about the day I almost became bald … the day I wanted to install the workflow manager on my 2013 development environment.

Wanting to do a clean install, I wanted to specify a specific service account for the application and not the Almighty Dev Farm Admin. However during my many attempts I always ended in front of an error like « Could not successfully create management Service Bus entity ‘WF_Management/WFTOPIC’ with multiple retries within timespan of…”

After tearing my hair out for hours I made a last attempt which proved successful, connect to my server directly with the desired service account and perform the installation.

I confess not to understand why because I tried the installation with a “Run as”. Perhaps a user profile on the machine is needed to store data.

 

Hope this helps.

Create default groups

SP2013


Hello everyone,

Today I will talk about a little trick on the creation of default groups in SharePoint sites.

Usually, creating a SharePoint site, several groups are created such as “Site Name” visitors, members and owners.

However, if you create your site through PowerShell, these “site name” groups are not present.

In order to easily have them, you can use the page at the url « weburl/_layouts/15/permsetup.aspx».

 

Hope this helps.

Christopher.
