Workflow must be in Published state

The above¬†error message is displayed in Dynamics 365 and most of the developers\users will look around workflows as the error says “Workflow must be in Published state.”

E.g. Creating a case throws the above error with the following details.

[Microsoft.Crm.Service.GlobalSlaPlugin: Microsoft.Crm.Service.GlobalSlaPlugin.SlaPostCreatePlugin]
[ebd908b4-2c74-e811-a95d-000d3ae0bc37: ObjectModel Implementation]

The issue is with SLA records associated with Case.

Deactivating SLA records and reactivate them back will resolve the issue.
