Hi,

In SharePoint 2016 the "Refresh Trusted Security Token Services Metadata feed" timer job is failing everyday for the last few days. Is it matter of concerned? Or Can we ignore this failure message? Many of the folks saying that this timer job is not mandatory, for example this link explained about this issue: Please help me on this.

    Hi @SP 2022 ,

    The "Refresh Trusted Security Token Services Metadata feed" timer job in SharePoint is a job that helps to refresh the security token when an access token expires after a few hours. This timer job is related to the Workflow Manager 1.0, which is used to run SharePoint 2013 workflows. If you have uninstalled the Workflow Manager 1.0, you may not need this timer job anymore. However, if you still have this timer job running and it fails, you may encounter some errors with your workflows. To troubleshoot this issue, you can try the following steps:

    • Restart the SharePoint Timer service on your server.
    • Clear the SharePoint configuration cache. Note: Microsoft is providing this information as a convenience to you. The sites are not controlled by Microsoft.

    • Check the detailed error message in the ULS log.
    • Reset the certificate generation key for the Workflow Manager.

    Hope this is helpful.
