Workflow permissions

  Asked By: Tanesha    Date: Jan 05    Category: MOSS    Views: 724

As site collection admins we have no trouble running WFs we created in
SPD (custom lists in MOSS).

We read in all the docs that "contribute" sb adequate for our users to
run the same WFs. However,.....

From "edit" a row on custom list, they can get to the panel to choose
which WF to run but instead of the "initialtion form" they get "ACCESS
DENIED".

Any idea of what is wrong, where to look, how to fix?

Sounds like the problem is not the workflow, but the form  itself. Are the
users allowed to view the form?

It might also be a problem with access to the Task list  used by the workflow.

----------------
I don't know, it is the standard form  that says "START" or "CANCEL" for all
WFs after you choose the WF you wish to run. We have zero control over it.

-----------------
We wrote the WF in SPD, it does not use any "task list". The WF progress flag
is automatically written back into the custom  list to which all users  have
"contribute".
=========================
Could it have to do with breaking inheritance between the custom list and its
site? Inheritance should carry all permissions  forward. We added one person
to custom list after breaking inheritance. This is working as long as an
"admin" runs the WF.

Even if you wrote it in SPD if you are using a form  to gather info from the
users as part of the workflow  that Task Form is hosted by the default task list
in the site  where the workflow is being kicked off. Do you use a "Collect Data
from User" action? If so, then this creates a task.
