Step 7: Workflow manager is setups a IIS web site on the box hosting on port 12290 (for ssl) and 12291 for http (non ssl). you can add host url for the ports that are of interest in configuration such as workflowmanager (This way we can avoid using the server FQDN name while configure with SharePoint site collection)

you can verify the workflow manager Installation by accessing http://localhost:12291 or http://<host url>:12291 (if host url configured). XML file with configuration detail opens..

Step 8: Now run the below SharePoint PowerShell command to configure the workflow manager with a SharePoint 2013 site collection

Register-SPWorkflowService –SPSite “http://myserver/mysitecollection&#8221;

–WorkflowHostUri “http://workflow.example.com:12291&#8221;

–AllowOAuthHttp

Step 9: Verify the Workflow Manager configured successfully with the site collection by using SharePoint Designer 2013
