    Workflow Errors Using the "Manager" Property in Project Server

    Status: Validated

    ISSUE
    When using the "Manager" property in Project Server, workflows display errors and fail to run.
    ERROR CODE
    RESOLUTION
    As a workaround, find another user, who is not the initiator of the workflow, and then use the Query LDAP action to get the manager. Note this is the way Project Server runs workflows - they will always run in the context of SHAREPOINT\system.
    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
    This is a limitation of the way workflows are run in Project Server. Workflows run in the context of the System Account (SHAREPOINT\system). Nintex uses SharePoint's functionality to determine the manager. The code which retrieves the manager is unable to resolve "SHAREPOINT\system" correctly.
