QUESTION
Is it possible to use "Action Set" impersonation (the "Run as workflow owner" option) on one branch of a Switch so that the actions in that branch use impersonation?
ANSWER
The "Run as workflow owner" setting is only available when the Action Set is at the root level of the workflow. If the Action Set is embedded in another action, such as a Switch, Parallel, Task, Condition, etc - the option is unavailable.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
As a workaround, put the switch action inside an action set. However, it is not possible to run one branch as owner and another to not run as the owner.
