Initiate SharePoint 2013 workflow with FBA user RRS feed

  • Question

  • SharePoint 2013 site is FBA and Windows authenticated. I have created one SharePoint 2013 workflow with an active directory user.

    When I initiated the workflow with the windows authenticated user, the workflow was initiated and executed without any error. But when I did the same with a FBA user, the workflow was cancelled and got an error i.e. There has been an error authenticating the request.

    The user profile was fully synchronized but when I searched for FBA users, they weren't there. But those FBA user which were created using FBA User Management were found in the user profile.

    I also tried to initiate the workflow using a FBA user which was created via FBA User Managementbut again reach to that error.

    I can initiate workflow with a FBA user by impersonating a workflow step. The FBA user is having rights on Workflow task and history lists. 

    Can anyone tell which permission the FBA user requires to execute the workflow without impersonate step?
