Today I’ll talk about a great news that can interest those who works with SharePoint On-Premises.
I have a customer where the infrastructure team wanted to upgrade our entire server to the latest version as a part of our migration from SharePoint 2013 to SharePoint 2016.
Seems pretty cool to be up to date but they warn us about one little problem
Windows Server 2016 does not support Workflow manager… ouch
As a reminder, Workflow Manager was introduced with SharePoint 2013 to run the custom workflows out of the SharePoint. That’s how you were supposed to develop your new Visual Studio Workflow to use it.
Workflow manager introduced also the possibility to create SharePoint 2013 Workflow with SharePoint Designer.
So in the end, many people used it one way or another.
Not so long ago, the workflow team announce the good news, Workflow Manager Server 1.0 now supports the following platforms when used in a SharePoint Server 2016 environment.
- .NET 4.6+ (when using Service Bus Server 1.1 with KB3086798)
- Windows Server 2016
- Windows 10 x64 (for development purposes)
- SQL Server 2014 & SQL Server 2016
Hoping this helps,
