MS Dynamics AX 2012: Stopped (error): X++ Exception: The text associated with this work item cannot be found in the assignee’s language..

While configuring a procurement workflow in MS dynamics AX 2012 for one of my client, I encountered with one workflow “stopped” error that happens rarely and not many get to know as how it happened and what is actually missing.

The error says:

“Stopped (error): X++ Exception: The text associated with this work item cannot be found in the assignee’s language, or in the default language for the system or legal entity. The workflow has stopped processing because of this error. Contact your system administrator for assistance.
at SysWorkflowWorkItem-createSysWorkflowWorkItem-createWorkItemsSysWorkflow-saveSysWorkflowQueue-resume..”

Problem: 

The problem occurs when the language translation for all the configured workflow steps are not specified.

Resolution: 

In order to fix this issue:

1- Recall the workflow.
2- Go to the activated version of the workflow and Edit it.
3- Make sure that your workflow configuration have translations in the languages that your users are using as their default languages.

4- Activate the version after making all necessary amendments (updating translations).

5- Resubmit the workflow for the approval.

The problem should be resolved by following the above mentioned steps.

Happy DAXing…!!
