Error submitting form from application config


Level 7



I have a brand new AEM OSGI instance on Windows.  I upgraded to 6.5.13.


I have created a simple workflow with 1 step - No operation.  No variables.

I have created a simple Adaptive form using the blank template.  Added a text box and a Submit button.

I configured the form container to submit to an AEM Workflow and Previewed the form.  It submits perfectly.

I created a Forms Application - I chose the Adaptive Form, The workflow, Assigned forms-users, and Relative to Payload - data.xml.  Everything else is default.

I got to my Inbox (as admin), create application, choose my application.  I see the form, I type some text and I click submit.

I receive an error in the UI, AEM-FD-011-003 - Error occurred while submitting draft.


No errors in log.  I have not increased logging.  I will try that now.

There is only a Set Value step.  Nothing configured.  It's essentially an empty workflow.

Is it possible to look up AEM-FD-011-003?  Maybe it will give me a hint.

@crich2784 Can you share the form and WF pkg over shared drive?

@Mayank_Gandhi I posted a link but, it's waiting on moderator.  Maybe here

This has the Form, Workflow and Start Point.

@crich2784 good way to put a link 🙂.  I have the package now, I will test and confirm.

I had a quick look, found your form Submit Action set to Forms Portal Submit Action.

So I changed it to Invoke an AEM Workflow as you previously mentioned it should be.

The form submits.

I was able to reproduce your error from create application (inbox).

Try setting the "Store attachments using" of your MultiAssign workflow application (e.g. data-attach) an see if that gets you past your error.

Hi @crich2784 ,


The error is due to no payload path provided for the workflow. I downloaded your form, reproduced the issue and was able to fix by following:

When a workflow is triggered on form submission, the form data (XML/JSON) becomes the payload for the workflow, and you kist need to propvide the name and path of the file where the payload will be kept (temporarily while thw workflow is running).
