Task set to inactive


Whenever I am executing my workflow, getting this. How to solve this?

2017-05-02 16:08:32 - U00007068 Task 'RM.DEFAULT.MYTASK' (Lnr: '0002') has been set to inactive because it cannot be found in the Deployment Descriptor.

    Hi @karthikeayan,

    From the Java UI:
    Edit the workflow > right-click on the task > go to the Earliest tab > verify if the 'Active' button is selected.

    From the AWI:
    Edit the workflow > click on 'Properties' > in the General tab, verify if the 'Active' button is selected.

    Thanks for the response.

    But I have checked the workflow, component and action inside component. All are set to active only.

    The key here is "Deployment descriptor". Is this an ARA-related Workflow?  If so you need to ensure that the Task has been correctly configured in the ARA-side, otherwise based on the behavior you're seeing my guess is it will Inactivate because the requirements aren't met for a valid configuration. 

    Note in the following doc that the third step returns status and descriptor to the Automation engine, which seems to match your error. I personally don't use ARA so I can't really assist further, but that's what jumped out at me.

    Ah good point, Michael!  Good catch that it's an ARA workflow.
    @karthikeayan, per the docu that Michael referenced, it stated that 
    the deployment descriptor is requested – a package with all of the parameters required to execute the deployment workflow.
    Did you remember to assign a package? If you go to your Application that's associated with that Workflow, you should be able to see the overview what entities are involved and what are missing.


    I hope this helps.
