Run Project Server 2013 Workflow with Elevated Permissions RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi ,

    I develop a complex Project Server 2013 workflow with is used in an EPT. In this workflow I have many task process actions. Some of actions are assigned to Sharepoint groups - for example workflow has to notify "Administrators for Project Web App" about new project. Administrator performs some actions and sends the project to a next workflow stage by completing a task process.

    If a project created by an user who is a member or "Administrators for Project Web App" workflow works OK. If the user isn't a member of this group - Workflow halts.

    In ULS I found this error: 11.07.2014 17:30:46.69  w3wp.exe (0x4C54)       0x5128  SharePoint Foundation CSOM   ahjq1    High       Exception occured in scope Microsoft.SharePoint.SPUserCollection._SerializeToOData. Exception=System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED))

    I've found this article http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/jj822159%28v=office.15%29.aspx on Elevated Permissions work SP2013 workflows. But I can't understand is it related to Project Server Workflows too.

    Thanks for your help!

  • Hi,

    Have tried first by changing the visibility of the group membership for the Administrators o Project Web App to Everyone and see if that would help?

    Hope this helps

  • Paul,

    I can't even express my thanks to you! I've and my collegue spend 5 hours for debugging. And we've managed to forget about the most obvious solution.

    Thank you! You've saved my weekends.
