Sharepoint Designer Publishing Error to Project Online site

Occasional Visitor



I am trying to publish a simple SharePoint Designer Workflow to Project Online and receive the following error:


Errors were found when compiling the workflow. The workflow files were saved but cannot be run.


Microsoft.SharePoint.SPPrincipalManagementException: An error occurred while attempting to execute a principal management operation.  Please contact your administrator. ---> System.ServiceModel.FaultException`1[Microsoft.Online.Administration.WebService.PropertyValidationException]: Invalid property specified
Server stack trace:
   at System.ServiceModel.Channels.ServiceChannel.HandleReply(ProxyOperationRuntime operation, ProxyRpc& rpc)
   at System.ServiceModel.Channels.ServiceChannel.Cal
In attempting to isolate the problem I found I can successfully publish an empty workflow from SharePoint Designer 2013 application on the Win 10 desktop to but receive the above error when attempting to publish an empty workflow to from the same desktop instance.
The SharePoint Designer 2013 application has SP1and other updates applied.
I am a PWA site admin of both tenancies.
There is only one minor issue when running the health check on the  site relating to the PWA landing page (which I can't clear) but that's it.
Any guidance appreciated.
