    Document Generation Workflows Fail in Site Created from Template

    Status: Validated

    ISSUE
    After creating a SharePoint site using a site template that includes a workflow with a Document Generation action configured, and removing the site from which the template was created, the Document Generation action becomes unconfigured and any workflows trying to execute that action fail.
    ERROR CODE
    RESOLUTION
    Update any workflows with the Document Generation action so that the document template is referencing a location on the current site and is no longer referencing the original template site.
    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
    The Document Generation action uses absolute references for the document template location, and even when the a site is created from a site template, the new site retains the document template location. If the original document template location is no longer accessible, the action becomes unconfigured, and any workflows trying to reference that location will also fail.
