I´m having issues with a task form and I don´t know what to do anymore.
The user can
Changing the users permissions doesn´t change anything.
Only if permissions on the task are updated to read-only, the issue message says that "you need edit permissions in order to execute the task".
Tasks assigned to others users can be seen. When accessing it it says "You are not authorized to respond to this task" which is expected.
I tried adding new Task Lists, Workflow History lists, giving the user Full-Control.
Even making my test user a site collection administrator doesn´t solve the issue.
Solved! Go to Solution.
thanks for your help!
I have tried with three users:
TestUser1: Can open the task form without problems
TestUser2: Can´t open the task form and gets the mentioned error
TestUser3: Same as 2
Updating the permissions on "processes" to contribute does not change the behaviour.
TestUser1 was used during development of the workflow. From when we started, permissions on all levels (site, lists, items) have been changed a few times. The other two users first accessed the site during final testing.
All Test users are members of the same group and don´t have any special permissions somewhere else. I fear that by playing around with the permissions, inheritance on some hidden list or so is broken and I can´t fix it.
Any other ideas?
@Tarf ...what about the Master Page library and Styled Resources...do they have custom permissions?
Also, have you tried in other browsers? Have you tried to clear cache, form data, password, etc., and close all the browser sessions and open a fresh new session?
I haven´t checked the master page library or styled resources but am sure I didn´t mess with them.
This strange behaviour happens on multiple devices, with multiple users using different browsers on multiple days.
I rebuilt the whole thing in a new site collection and now it works. I don´t know whats messed up with the old one 🙂
