Error in Task. Unauthorized attempt to update workflow task. The response has not been recorded.

Hi,

I have been looking over the forum for a solid answer on this and have not come across one yet. We are seeing this error occur sporadically on one of our SharePoint lists. All of the users have contribute access to the site as well.

Would someone be able to assist with this?

Thanks!

Greg

Hey Greg, the first thing I would normally check is that the Workflow Task list that the workflow is associated to is inheriting permissions to the site. Also to the History list on the site

We are also seeing the same issues with workflow's, where the list has broken permission and we have upgraded the visitors read permissions to contribute, and receiving nearly the same error as Greg's team. I have done lots of TS, removed forms, re - created lists, re-created wf, made a list with just a title and a Nintex WF, used our test account and same results. What did work was creating the WF in SP designer, completed without error. Help Nintex!!!!

Retrying last request. Next attempt scheduled in less than one minute. Details of last request: HTTP Unauthorized to GUID information was here

Access denied. You do not have permission to perform this action or access this resource.

Thanks,

Dottie

Hey Andrew - The same user will have the workflow run successfully and then the next time they run it it fails. Then the third time they run it it works fine. It's sporadic for each associate, not just sporadic to a limited number of associates.

We are also seeing another error with them stating "Failed to report workflow progress. Could not allocate space for object 'dbo.WorkflowProgress'.'PK_WorkflowProgress' in database 'NW2010DB' because the 'PRIMARY' filegroup is full. Create disk space by deleting unneeded files, dropping objects in the file"

Thoughts?

Seems to be a disk space problem on your sql server.

Hey Fernando - Thanks for the reply. Wish I had access to that (give me a problem with limited access to the site / server.....), went ahead and forwarded on to our software engineer.

Still looking into main issue though.

We are Office 365, and SP Designer workflow works on the same list, can't be a SQL issue.

Hey Dorothy Verspeek​, the SQL issue was a separate error from the main one. Still trying to figure that one out.
