SharePoint workflow limitations - won't associate - I have a long workflow (37 pages long) about 80 workflow variables, but the files are all less than 600KB (well below the 5M limit).
I reduced the number of workflow variables and that helped but still this problem if I try to add too much logic.
When I add additional statements sometimes the workflow fails association when attempting to publish. However, when I take out those statements, it publishes fine.
It doesn't seem to be dependent on what I add - even a simple log statement can cause this problem. I'm not running into the limit of steps or how nested things are from my reading of the MS documentation. Impractical to split this into 2 (or more) workflows as would take a lot of coordination between them to prevent inappropriate cross-triggering (they would both need to modify the record and are set to run on modification).
Environment : SP 2013 with ONLY SP 2010 workflows, Full control only - no SCA, no support from farm admins - cannot change anything at farm level.
