Async not working in TFS 2013 Update 2

May 5, 2014 at 11:45 PM
I installed TfsEventWorkflows-2013-2-0.11.41741.0 and can get synchronous workflows to work, but I can't get async workflows to work. When I check the job history, I see that the result is "ExtensionNotFound" (when I query the tbl_JobHistory table in the TFS_Configuration database the result is 6). When I check the Job Definition, the extension is listed as "artiso.TFSEventWorkflows.TFSEventWorkflowsServerPlugin.WorkflowRunnerJob" I have verified that I have the artiso.TFSEventWorkflows.TFSEventWorkflowsServerPlugin.dll and config file in the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Team Foundation Server 12.0\Application Tier\ TFSJobAgent\plugins folder as required.

What am I doing wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi John,

can you check whether you have the following dll's in the plugin folder

artiso.TFSEventWorkflows.TFSEventWorkflowsServerPlugin.dll.config (with adjusted logging configuration)

if you have configured a concrete workflow using activities you also may Need

Verify that the DLL's in the Plugins Folder are "unblocked". TFS JobAgent does not load "blocked" DLL's while the TFS WebService does.
