How to identify Who initiated the workflow RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We observed that in our production site, the  OOTB workflow are running for one of the document library. It says this has been started by system account.  We want to identify who started that workflow. is there a way I can find that out?

    Thanks in advance,

  • If Initiator is a System Account, then you haven't possibilities to check who is a real initiator.

  • Hello,

    If you go to that document library, find an item that the workflow is running on, or has completed.  Hover the cursor over the item and click on the Edit dropdown menu.  Click on Workflows.  Under the "Running Workflows" or "Completed Workflows" sections, you should be able to click on the workflow and it will bring up the Workflow Status page for that workflow.  At the top, you should see the Initiator of the workflow.
