The option for the SharePoint 2013 workflow platform is not available because the workflow service is not configured on the server

Hi there,

I have configured SharePoint 2013 and Workflow Manager.
Created new Site Collection. However I was not able to create SharePoint 2013 workflows.
Option for"SharePoint 2013 Workflow" (but SharePoint 2010 workflows works).

Issue was, The site collection was created using blank template, which doesn't include all necessary dependency features for creating workflows.

Fix: we need to enable hidden feature WorkflowServiceStore using PowerShell.

Enable-SPFeature -Identity WorkflowServiceStore –Url $yourUrl

And finally I got option in SharePoint Designer:


  1. I am having this issue and I tried the Enable-SPFeature -Identity WorkflowServiceStore –Url $yourUrl, but it throws an error saying that scope is already activated... back to the drawing board.

  2. This worked for me. Thanks for the tip.

  3. Where do you execute this command, on normal laptop or on server?
