Issue Description
When creating a K2 for SharePoint application, including a workflow with the option to start when a SharePoint event occurs, the workflow takes a long time to start after the SharePoint event is executed.

Cause
One call per SmartObject was executed which results in high load volume.

Repro Steps

  1. Create a Custom List with forty Choice columns.
  2. Add one or two Lookup columns.
  3. Integrate the list with K2 to create Data and Workflow.
  4. Select a SharePoint event, such as “Add new item” as the Start Option for the workflow.
  5. Add a Placeholder event and Deploy the workflow.
  6. Add a new item in the Custom List to start a new instance.
  7. Notice it will take more than five minutes for the workflow to start.

  3. Get the K2 4.7 February 2017 Cumulative Update FP2 from Regional Support.
