I use the SPD to create a custom workflow which will assign to-do task to users. The workflow is attached to a list library in a subsite and users only have view-only permission to the subsite (users are added to the subsite directly, not inside any sharepoint group).ÃÂ In order for users to complete the assigned task, I have broken the permission inheritance and change users to have contribute permission on the Task list.
The workflow would trigger as expected and a new task is created for the user. The user can see the "edit task" link in the task item but when clicked "edit task", an "access denied" error occurs.
Under further investigation, I notice access are granted for sharepoint group e.g. site visitors, site members on URL http://....../workflow/workflow_name/newtask.aspx , and only when I create the workflowÃÂ under theÃÂ site administrator account. If I create the workflow under an account which also has "Full Control" to the subsite,ÃÂ No access are granted to the workflow library at all.
What permission levels do I need to create workflows in designer really? Does it make a difference if the workflow is on a top-root site or subsite? Full control on the top-root site or subsite?
Thanks in advance.
